     Future Plans
    Investar Redevelopment is interested in "revitializing" the site. The redevelopment plans include commercial and/or residential condos, and possibly a small commercial venue like a bakery.

    Investar is planning to hold a meeting this summer to discuss development options with the town.

    Environmental cleanup costs are estimated to aproach $1M.
