A couple of legitimate concerns were brought up including potential leakage(including overnight when, according to the IAA legal rep, there would be no employees present), and groundwater contamination. Another interesting point that was brought up was if employees needed to be OSHA Hazwoper trained(I am currently doing my annual 8 Hr refresher) in order to clean up any potential spills. Fire suppression in case of a large-scale fire was also mentioned, with the nearest hydrant over 2 miles away according to one commenter. As was preliminary ground sampling as well as environmental impacts to a local endangered tree frog and vegetation. The most contentious point of the night was the last one when one of the land use board members began grilling them on their application and how only a certain % of land in each lot may be changed and why they were attempting to do more than that. I may have the wording in that last part wrong, but that was the gist of it. In my assessment, the IAA team was not very well prepared for some of the questionings, stumbling around with some George Carlin-esque double talk, or just flat out not knowing the answer. It sure seemed to me that the land use guy is not a fan of this deal. Regardless, it went to 11 PM and it was adjourned until 3/1 at 7 PM. The public has not had a chance to comment yet and I hope that they make some impactful statements that have a negative effect on this deal.

Where did that picture of the loader pushing the wall down at Atco come from, and when was it taken? I see the date on the bottom, but it looks like that was the date of the picture taken by a cell phone.

That was most likely taken from their facebook page. Somebody screenshot it and put it on the atco memories page the other day.

That was taken 7 or 8 years ago.

They got the rain water run off catch basin all wrong . And they never addressed a possible electric car lith. Battery fire with push for more electric cars and no fire hose with water will stop that from lighting the other cars on fire and then the pine Forest on a nice hot windy day . They just want to plant trees along the roadway fence line to hide their pollution.

Looks like they're working hard to find another use for the land. Sad!

It seems, at this point, they're trying to keep it a dragstrip because it's the lesser of two evils, from the PPA's standpoint, at least.

So right now, the tree huggers are a racer's best friend. Kinda ironic.

I haven't seen this question raised, it may have been but I haven't seen it.
Did the current owner make any attempt to find a buyer(s) wanting to keep it as is?

Good question.

It seems someone in the dragracing media needs to contact the owner and do an interview.

The track has such a rich history that I would think the owner could at least provide the thousands of people who have patronized it with some information.
