Abstract

"City" piece on a proposal to construct new apartment buildings in Bayside on municipally owned lots, some of which are contaminated with hazardous materials. A 1998 report by the consulting firms of Terrence J. DeWan & Associates and Tewhey Associates found a variety of toxic wastes in the soil, including ash, arsenic, lead, petroleum residue, creosote and PCBs. But a March 1999 report prepared by Tewhey Associates concluded that current zoning, which prohibits housing on the sites, should be reviewed to determine if this restriction is still "desireable." Dennis Sarofeen of the Bayside Neighborhood Association said he's fed up with the conflicting information his group is getting. The proposed residential development would replace 18 housing units in 13 buildings that would be torn down if a new sports arena is built in the Bayside neighborhood.
