PLEASE STOP THIS!, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE DOING. WE ALL AGREE THE CANAL NEEDS TO BE CLEANED,BUT THIS IS THE WRONG WAY TO GO ABOUT IT. THEY WILL COME IN AND SHUT DOWN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME, WE WILL FOREVER BE KNOWN AS A SUPERFUND NEIGHBORHOOD AND ALL PROGRESS WILL BE LOST.

Why do you say Katia has no idea what she's doing? Why do you say this is the wrong way to go about cleaning the canal? Who will come in? What do you mean by shutting down the neighborhood? Everyone would have to leave? barricades? Abandoned homes? Closed businesses? Why do you make all these sweeping statements with no facts or rational arguments. Katia has done a considerable amount of analysis of the canal's problems to reach her conclusions. You do not seem to have put in the same effort.

At least put some work into your thinking instead of some knee-jerk reaction.

7:59 There is no doubt in anyone's mind that if the canal is to really be cleaned up, it will need time, it will need ALL the tools of the EPA. You are fear-mongering. Nothing will ever be the same again in this neighborhood anyway. The gig is up. It is D Day. No developer can say, like Toll Bros. has said, that the canal is "not so dirty". Mr. Buddy Scotto chimes in line with "the canal is clean enough now..." WHAT PROGRESS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THAT HAS BEEN MADE???!!! GETTING TOLL BROS THE SPOT REZONING SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE THEIR MONEY AND PUT ALL THOSE NEW RESIDENTS IN DENSE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS AT RISK??? You make no sense, and I, for one, intend to do all I can to reassure the EPA that I support Superfund comprehensive cleanup.

Mary and Anonymous 6:39PM, Thank You!!

1000s of people live in our community and we have faith in what it can become. The canal needs to be cleaned!! That will make our lives better here. But to put our faith in a developer to clean up the soil and water is ludicrous. Isn't that what people were promised in the Williamsburg area? And does it seem cleaner to you? Do you really think they did a great job cleaning the soil under the fancy condos?
