We have the opportunity to do something great for our three communities. Today, each time the public crosses the railroad (illegally), there is a human health risk and then comes into contact with contaminated soils. If we sit by and do nothing, we risk the health and safety of our residents.

On the other hand, if we engage in a collaborative cleanup effort, we ensure an enduring quality of life legacy for our community while preserving its character.

It’s up to each of us to decide what our front yard could look like.
