EPA Leadership Tours Black River Sites
September 29, 2017 – USEPA Region 5 Section Chief Brooke Furio joined Tom Brown of the Lorain Port Authority and Don Romancak from Lorain County on a boat tour of the Black River with the Vita Nuova team. Starting at the mouth of the Black River with a view of the Lorain Harbor Lighthouse, the team traveled up along the banks of the Black River to identify potential catalytic sites and further familiarize the team with the project study area. The properties included in this segment of the project area vary widely from industrial and mixed use to residential. All were impressed with the amount of waterfront land that may be available for redevelopment. The boat tour was an excellent way to see all the hidden beauty along the banks of the Black River.
