In My Travels
Zimmerman Art Glass
The property had been developed as a Sinclair gas station in 1952. New tanks were installed in the 1990’s to comply with EPA regulations. Mr. Zimmerman watched the property for six years as it sat vacant, waiting for someone to take over the property. That happened after the previous owner removed the underground storage tanks, as well as hydraulic lifts in the garage.
Mr. Zimmerman described the process of working through the environmental regulations as “frustrating” and that “it’s not a real friendly process”. The company that removed the tanks filled out the paperwork incorrectly, leading to delays in the project. Finally with help from a local commissioner he was able to bring his vision for redevelopment to fruition.
