City looking to ‘start from scratch’ with old farmers market site and wants your help

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (GA)
JANUARY 17, 2019 

City officials are close to submitting a grant proposal that if approved would allow them to “start from scratch” and re-imagine how a blighted chunk of land in the city limits could be put to better public use. 

The city of Columbus is seeking a $500,000 EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant to remove hazardous materials on the site of the former Georgia State Farmers Market site at 318 10th Avenue. The grant would help clean up debris at the site, including asbestos containing materials, lead paint and soil contaminated with petroleum. 

Laura Johnson, director of community reinvestment for the Columbus Consolidated Government, said the site is currently blight and isn’t being utilized.
