The third and final community meeting this year for Glenham Mills took place on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at the Slater Chemical Fire Hall. Approximately 80 participants attended the meeting focused on the planning for the future of the site (the former Texaco Beacon Research Center).
Connie Hall, Real Estate Consultant with Chevron Land and Development Company gave introductory remarks explaining that future uses and timing of any future redevelopment of the of the former Texaco Beacon Research Center is currently being evaluated. And, that Chevron’s goal is to remediate the site to regulatory standards and continue with land-use planning in a way that is creative, collaborative and economically viable.
Neighbors received a brief history of the site, an outline of the public participation process, and an inspiring presentation on common themes for mixed-use. Comments and questions raised by the community were generally about the environmental and the planning process. After the presentation, attendees were free to visit the gallery room to view 3D models of possible concept plans, and talk to Chevron’s team of experts to answer their questions.
The meeting concluded with a summary of vision principles including creative uses for pedestrian connectivity and open spaces and an outline of next steps in the public participation process.
