Public Meeting To Be Held About Of Vlasic/Pinnacle Site

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is holding a public workshop about the possible redevelopment of a property in Dagsboro.

On Thursday, November 21st, from 3- 5 PM, at the Millsboro Fire Hall on State Street, DNREC's Community Involvement Advisory Council is hosting a meeting about the potential redevelopment of the former Vlasic Pickle site on Pinnacle Way in Dagsboro.

Allen M. Harim Foods has a brownfields agreement with DNREC to purchase the site, and turn it into a poultry processing plant. A public hearing on the brownfields development agreement and a proposed plan of remediation by DNREC's Site Investigation and Restoration Section is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 4, also at the Millsboro Fire Hall, starting at 6 PM.

A panel of experts will be on hand to explain the permitting process, and the public health and environmental protection provided by these efforts. Staff from DNREC along with the Department of Health and Social Services' Office of Drinking Water will be there to answer any questions from the public.

Some residents claim that Vlasic left the property contaminated with carcinogens, and now they're fearful of what Allen Harim Foods will do to the Indian River, once they move in.
