Chicopee to redevelop downtown gas station land abandoned for 13 years; contamination cleanup begins

Work has begun to clean up hazardous waste on a small piece of land identified as a vital link in the efforts to redevelop the West End of Chicopee Center.

The property at 181 Center St. housed a gas station dating back to the 1920s and has been vacant since 2004, when pumps and three underground tanks were removed. The city foreclosed on the property, owned by Racing Oil LLC, in 2009 for a lack of payment of taxes.

"The cleanup and subsequent redevelopment of the Racing Oil property is a crucial endeavor to diminishing the environmental hazard and promoting economic development in the West End," said city planner Lee Pouliot.
