Leadership Board. Lancaster City Council approved the new group in mid-October, and ap- proved Tucker and 21 other neighborhood residents and stakeholders to its board. The Lancaster Housing Op- portunity Partnership (LHOP) formed the organization and its board to chart a course of action enabling residents and partners of Southwest Lan- caster to create a safe, clean neighborhood that is attractive to economic investment and welcoming to residents and visitors.

The new board will work from a master plan devised by LHOP to transform Southwest Lancaster, locally referred to as “Cabbage Hill.” Tucker will also be a legal adviser to the new board’s executive committee. “I’m excited to join in the on- going efforts to devote knowl- edge and resources to the development of the Cabbage Hill neighborhood, because it helps invigorate the entire Lancaster community,” Tucker said. “Lancaster has seen so much growth in recent years, and this is an area of the city with tremendous potential.” n gi Nation Ambassadors and are paid with Biznis Bucks for the work they perform.

Motion Industries to open facility in CenterPoint

This historic brownfield site whichwas contaminating Carn- egie’s soil and groundwater is now a bustling Get-Go gasoline station and convenience store, and the site is no longer an ongoing concern for the com- munity. This development was made possible because of Giant Eagle’s willingness to address environmental problems and ability to turn a site into a more productive reuse, their use of a local consultant familiar with the benefits that PADEP pro- grams provide, and the Act 2 Land Recycling Program.

The potential for vapor intrusion into onsite and nearby buildings was also evaluated and found not to be of concern. Upon the conclusion of groundwater monitoring, an Act 2 Final Report will be prepared which will document the environmental issues en- countered, and demonstrate that a site-specific standard has been attained for petroleum compounds in soil and ground- water at the site. Despite all of the challenges, Act 2 made it possible for this site to be redeveloped concurrently with remediation activities, a major benefit of the program.
