Beede Superfund Site Reuse Master Plan
The Beede superfund site reuse master plan project was a part of the EPA Superfund Redevelopment Initiative Pilot Program, involving a 39-acre site located in a residential neighborhood. Community members were engaged for a series of public meetings that were held to build relationships with stakeholders and to understand people's wants, needs, and concerns for the site. These meetings were followed by two public charrettes that yielded several viable master plan alternatives exploring feasible reuse options for the property. Upon community consensus, one final master plan was selected. Afterwards, the EPA handed down a record of decision (ROD) mandating that the potentially responsible parties (PRPs) be required to remediate the site to the level dictated by the final design and supported by the design process.
