Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Flint Group Pigments site, Huntington, West Virginia
City moving forward with Highlawn brownfield development

Huntington Herald-Dispatch (WV)
October 2, 2018

HUNTINGTON - Huntington Mayor Steve Williams said cleaning up part of the Flint Group Pigments site is another step closer to redeveloping a large swath of blighted and underused properties in the city's Highlawn neighborhood.
Meanwhile, there's six months left on an option for the Huntington Municipal Development Authority to purchase the former Ingram Barge property, located along the Ohio River. This site, running from 25th Street to 27th Street, has been eyed to build a Polymer Tech Center after Huntington-based polymer conversion company, Rubberlite Inc., expressed interest in building an advanced research and development center.

However, what plans the city has for the Flint Group Pigments is not concrete. Earlier this month, HMDA board members agreed to purchase 8 acres of the property on 5th Avenue for $1.2 million. Provisions in the agreement stipulate if the property is found not environmentally suitable at any time during the next 90 days, the deal could be called off and the money refunded.
