The public is invited to a community workshop Thursday, August 21 to discuss options to reuse portions of the North 48th Street Landfill property. The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Auld Recreation Center, 3140 Sumner St. The City is considering mostly recreational uses for the property, including bicycle sports, cross country running, bird watching, hiking and various shooting sports.
The 570-acre site at 5101 N. 48th St. has been operated as a municipal landfill and now operates as a construction and demolition debris landfill as well as a transfer station. The site benefits from many natural resources including wetlands, streams, vegetation and wildlife.
The workshop will give participants an opportunity to review site information and provide input to help the City develop a plan to guide future land use activities at the site. The plan will provide a proactive, comprehensive framework to guide decisions on recreational uses, infrastructure and public services at the site.
