"Right now we've recently installed a new sewer line out in front of the facility," Lawrence said.Clarksville leaders have been working with the owners -- The Boston Development Group -- to get the project moving.
Town officials hope the redevelopment will be a catalyst for what will be called Clarks Landing -- a revitalization of the neighborhood south of the plant all the way to the river."We're hoping for residential, we're hoping for commercial and retail where you can live, work and play, which is something we don't see a lot of in this market," Lawrence said.
Some are currently underway as part of the bridges project near the second street bridge. The town is working on an updated master plan.We've master planned for the Colgate property," Lawrence said. "We would like to do something a little more comprehensive that encompasses the whole area."
Even optimistically it will likely be 2020 before Clarks Landing will be fully developed."We realize it's a marathon with this property, it's not a race."
