NESCO working toward a net-zero neighborhood

A NESCO task force is working on plans to possibly redevelop the site of a former Chemtura plant at 21st and Olney Streets as a solar farm. The group's ultimate goal is establish a net-zero community through the solar farm and other sustainable energy sources to support affordable housing opportunities in the neighborhood north of Brookside Park. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management says the site needs limited remediation, but could work for the project. NESCO will host a charrette next Monday and Tuesday with urban design students from Ball State to further explore the site's potential. Students will present their findings Tuesday at 6 p.m. in a public meeting at the Brookside Community Center, 3500 Brookside Parkway South Drive. To RSVP or for more information, contact Laurie Klinger at 637-6242 or laurieklinger@att.net.
