From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
Remember how a company (Pacific Environmental Corp.) wanted to build a hazardous waste treatment plant in Fairview?
It was going to go on about three-quarters of an acre at East First Avenue and Ingra Street?
Yeah, that's not going to happen.
The state DEC said no, ruling that the plant would have been too close to neighboring roads and property lines. Look for a story tomorrow and online tonight.
Fairview Community Council President Darrel Hess said the first-of-its-kind plant looked to have promising technology, but the Fairview wasn't the place for it.
That neighborhood is changing he said: "Is it appropriate to have waste facilities there, is it appropriate to have homeless shelters there?"
That's something to watch: Talk of moving Bean's Café or the Brother Francis Shelter, possibly to the Tudor area.
