DEC: Any Bossert Development Projects Will Have Restrictions

Officials Consider Options For Former Bossert Manufacturing Site
Jeanette Lenoir, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Department of Environmental Conservation officials say they plan to oversee any proposed construction project for the former Bossert Manufacturing site in Utica. Spokesperson for the DEC’s Watertown Office, Steven Litwhiler, says it should serve as a reminder to elected officials pitching their development ideas for the former hazardous waste site. “And, the only real restriction is with regards to digging into the ground. Whenever there is construction that is done on the site, the material that are underneath the ground need to be handled appropriately,” Litwhiler said.

The site is zoned to be used for commercial and industrial purposes, and City of Utica Councilman Jim Zecca, Oneida County Legislator-elect Harmone Speciale, and other community leaders are lobbying New York State Department of Transportation to consider the negative impact the North-South Arterial Project will have on future developments at the site.
