Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Ponce de Leon Resort, St. Augustine, Florida
Residents speak against brownfield

KATI BEXLEY St. Augustine Record (FL) October 10. 2006

The St. Augustine City Commission held its first public hearing Monday on whether to allow a developer to receive a tax break to clean the contaminated former Ponce de Leon Resort property.

"I think it's morally wrong to ask taxpayers to pay for this," said Bob Frohardt, a Ponte Vedra Beach resident, one of two people who spoke at the hearing.

The former Ponce site on U.S. 1, north of the city, covers 419 acres of which 284 acres are contaminated with arsenic. It was used for weed control on the Ponce golf course from 1916 to 2003.
