As reported in, Pompton Lakes leadership is contemplating whether to demolish every single building in the central business district fronting on Wanaque Avenue.  The concept would be to build multi-story buildings with 400 units above street-level retail uses.  However, it appears that the plan is contingent upon DuPont coming to the table and cleaning up its long dormant munitions factory.

Any such plan is a long-way off, as the remedial investigation has not yet been completed by DuPont.   Yet the site is not listed on the National Priority List (aka “Superfund” site).

We’ll keep you posted.
