Former glue factory to be demolished

March 25, 2009

To help further the city's efforts to redevelop the lakefront area, Oak Creek Storage and Handling will demolish several structures, including the former Peter Cooper glue factory, 9006 S. 5th St.

The Plan Commission on March 24 granted a temporary-use permit to Sigma Environmental Services to allow for the crushing and storage of concrete at the site.

A former fire station and warehouse also will be removed. Work is expected to begin April 15 and to be completed within about six months.

About 80,000 cubic yards of concrete generated through the operation will be taken off-site. Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
