“In 2022, Metro Council approved the allocation of $10 million in federal American Rescue Plan funds to pay for environmental remediation at the Rhodia site, 1495 S. 11th St. Louisville Metro Government issued two requests for proposals related to this work: St. Louis-based O6 Environmental was chosen to remediate soil contamination at the site, and EnviroForensics was chosen to oversee the removal of contaminated soil.
‘We are excited to finally move forward on the cleanup of this site. The resulting redevelopment project will serve as a cornerstone for much-needed future development in the Park Hill and Algonquin neighborhoods to improve quality of life for area residents and build up neighborhoods that have long been neglected,” said Mayor Greenberg. “Thank you to the members of the Opportunity Advisory Board for their hard work to ensure this project meets the needs and desires of the community and to Re:land Group for putting community first throughout this process.’
