Mr. Jackson said city officials are trying to work with him, and have suggested two other sites to place the wood chips. He said the Bancroft Street site is covered with concrete, so he would be able to compost there, but not grow vegetables.
“There’s definitely negotiations going on. I have a letter from economic development stating that they are working with me to get a new site,” Mr. Jackson said.
“But the site has some remediation issues. It has some contaminants. I was expecting them to remove the concrete and dig out the contaminants. They didn’t have the money. They wanted me to work above the concrete,” he said.
