Or perhaps conveniently ignored?
Remember “The Stack”? When Lockheed left behind the old B1 site that later became the Empire Center, the whole town was in an uproar about how toxic the land was. They spent years “remedying” the place in preparation for future projects.
Now we’ve been hearing a lot about the old B6 manufacturing lot lately, but — except for Mike Nolan asking a question or two over the last few years– there’s been little or no public discussion about the supposed remediation efforts that are going on over there.
Any EIR and environmental studies attached to the area — including the adjacent “replacement terminal” site –must take into consideration the inherent toxicity of the underlying property. So where are they, and where is the same kind of community concern that we had 20 years ago just a mile away?
To be specific, we’ve seen nothing like this about B6. And the land will soon be developed. Or even studies about arranging for such a study?
Now this old chart came from a Burbank2035 brochure listing, buried deep within:
Again, what’s the agreed-upon remediation effort for B6? As well as the adjacent property still owned by the Authority. Both the public and the council members need to be able to factor it in as part of their ultimate decisions about these properties.
Any truth either to the old rumor that there are underground bunkers on these lots that were once used to store nuclear material, including (at one time) actual weapons for quick military access to the airport, in case of need?
Too bad they can’t “remediate” it to look like this again, eh? Even if it was a sham.
It looks a helluva lot better than Walmart. Old news accounts too say that this was done by Warners, not Disney.
