"News Release by Date: EPA to Hold Public Meeting Regarding the Red Panther Superfund Site Assessment, Clarksdale, Mississippi". Release date: 06/22/2010 Contact Information: Dawn Harris-Young, (404) 562-8421, firstname.lastname@example.org
(In the spirit of fair play and Environmental Justice - I think that is is a conflict of interest to have a meeting this important at the Chamber of Commerce offices. The Chamber of Commerce has always favored industry, and their most recent stand AGAINST Recovery & Reinvestment, and the Health of the People is a Red Flag that Fairness and Justice will not be found easily at this Public Meeting Location.)

Another reason a Superfund can have an Assessment is for a Brownfield Property Assessment to see if it can be rehabilitated for Human habitation and use. This would mean, an interested Agency or Organization is considering taking on the spoiled property, and work to restore to former or better use. This coming up meeting will be discussing the future of this property.
In order for Environmental Justice to be served, more needs to show up at these meetings besides industry.
Thank you for all you do for the Environment, thank you for your public service. Thank you for each "one thing" you do to save our Planet. Peace, Lori...
