May 8th and 9th: Fremont County Brownfield Coalition Meetings

Community meetings will be held on Wednesday, May 8th, in Florence and Thursday, May 9th, in Cañon City, to provide information about the Fremont County Brownfield Coalition’s Site Revitalization Program.  According to Commissioner Debbie Bell's recent article in the Daily Record, "Potential project sites might have once hosted mining for gold, iron, gypsum, coal, or uranium, leaving behind abandoned mines, ore mills, travel pits, electrical transformers, and unpermitted dump sites."

The Florence meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 8th, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the City of Florence Council Chambers 600 West 3rd Street, Florence. The Cañon City meeting will be held on Thursday, May 9th, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the City’s offices at 128 Main Street, Cañon City.  More information can be found on the Fremont County website at https://www.fremontco.com/files/brownfieldnewsrelease.pdf.
