LOGAN – Plans are being set in motion to get the former Logan Junior High School on Stratton St. cleaned up. A meeting will be held on Thurs. during the Single Family Housing Expo to discuss a grant submission application.
PRIDE Community Services, Inc. is planning to submit a Brownfield Cleanup grant application to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requesting funds to support the project.
Brownfields are properties that may be abandoned, idle, and/or underutilized that are not being redeveloped due to the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance.
This application will request EPA funds to assist with cleanup of known contamination at specified locations on the site.
The EPA encourages public participation in this application process to ensure community awareness and that community needs are being considered related to property redevelopment.
A draft version of the application is available for review and comment at PRIDE Community Services, Inc, 699 Stratton Street, Logan WV and online at www.prideinlogan.com. Specific questions and/or comments can be addressed to: Reginald Jones, Executive Director (304) 752-6868.
The public is invited to attend a meeting to be held during the Single Family Housing Expo at the Earl Jarvis Senior Enrichment Center, 699 Stratton Street, Logan, WV to discuss the grant submission on Nov 8, 2012 at 12:30 p.m.

PRIDE offers one-on-one credit counseling, homebuyer education and will build three homes within Logan County for families to purchase. The Expo will start at 10:30 a..m. and end at 2:30 p.m.
