Just when you thought you had heard the last about City View....
CV is the shopping center that was built on an old landfill. It was the location of the Joann store where i worked up until April. Joann closed that location due to various reasons, one being the methane problems. WalMart announce this morning that the CV location "IS CLOSED!" No warning, it's CLOSED! I guess they have had enough too!
I don't go to CV often because of the dangers, but recently i was there and surprised (not really) to see huge generators with hoses going down into the sewers to exhaust the fumes. I guess the stores are fine (yeah right) but the parking lot has high levels of methane in the sewers. Across the parking lot is a huge mountain of dirt that also contains high levels of methane. Right at the edge of that mountain of dirt is a gas station! (hmm....good thinking!) I had also noticed that on the sidewalks they had replaced the standard manhole covers with grated covers instead.
Still in question is the standing cloudy water that can be found in the parking lot during a drought! A crack in the parking lot that goes from one end to the other.
The EPA is giving the city a hard time (lawsuits mentioned) over problems with the shopping center. It looks almost like a ghost town, since building came to a halt late last year. It is sad to see the shells of the new stores just standing waiting to be finished. They finally took down the sign announcing that the Dollar Tree will be opening soon!
With all the problems with CV, the shopping center across the freeway has been on hold until the problems with CV have been settled....I think the mayor really messed up!! This was his "baby" and would stop at nothing to see this to the end.....I think the end is approaching....but not the ending he wanted!! But don't worry! The tax payers will take care of it......
