Lawrence, MA kicks off redevelopment of 19th century paper mill.
by Allison Corneau
Six years after fire ripped through the Merrimac Paper Company site, plans are underway to redevelop the 19th-century paper mill on the south bank of the Merrimack River.
City officials and local environmental experts held a virtual public meeting over Zoom last week to outline the first of many steps necessary to redevelop the site before overhauling the property that once employed as many as 275 people. The former paper company on South Canal Street sits on three lots totaling 4.75 acres, according to a study prepared by Credere Associates, the firm hired by the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission to analyze Brownfields cleanup alternatives.
