October 13, 2020.


Irvine, Kentucky.


The Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation will hold a public meeting on Monday, October 19, 2020, at 10:00 am at 499 Kirkland Avenue, Irvine, Kentucky, as part of the application for Environmental Protection Agency Cleanup grant for the Kentucky Rail Heritage Center (KRHC). The reference number for this grant opportunity is EPA-OLEM-OBLR-20-07.




The purpose of the public hearing is to give the community an opportunity to learn more about this project, ask questions, learn how grant dollars are being used to revitalize KRHC, and to make comments about the grant application and the Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) document. A copy of the grant draft proposal and a draft of the ABCA will be available for viewing. The public will have an opportunity to verbally comment on the drafts. Comments will be captured in meeting minutes by Kentucky Steam Heritage Corporation staff. This meeting will be held in-person following applicable CDC guidelines and social distancing protocols.  The ABCA will also be available via email due to COVID potentially restricting participants from attending the meeting. . For those unable to attend the public hearing, you can submit written comments to info@kentuckysteam.org
