Anyone remember the gas station off rt 30 by walmart-american pride gas and car wash?

A friend of mine was talking about it the other day. When it opened it was busy, then I think the owner died and it went downhill fast.
Does anyone know what happened?
Also does anyone know what happened to the 2 large toy soldiers that stood in front of the building?
Thanks

I believe that was owned by the Dispensa family. Those toy soldiers were actually originally in front of Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom in Elmhurst (I believe) which was a precursor to Toys R Us. I also heard that the owner died.

I think is has been difficult to rejuvenate that property because of the buried fuel tanks. It's always expensive to deal with underground fuel tanks that can cause environmental problems and can drive the costs up dramatically. Eventually it will be sold but with lots already available on Rt. 30 I'm guessing that developers would rather not risk having to mitigate a potential environmental hazard.

underground tanks could be a potential problem at the BP at Cedar and Rt 30 that the village wants to develop

I do think the BP will be a problem as well as contamination at the Hutchins Professional Cleaners next door. The place has been there for years and they really didn't have an effective method of disposing their cleaning chemicals.

I have handled EPA issues in court for many companies. When the ground is contaminated, The cleanup cost is astronomical. If you leave the property vacant for 10yrs, no clean up is necessary. Most companies choose that option.

Really please tell us all about it. What is the name of the type of property exactly like this old gas station. Who would a property owner contact in regards to the clean up of this type of property here in new lenox. What code or statute would this fall under. What resources are available to someone who wanted to purchase and develop this type of property. Under what statute or code can I find the ten year no clean up regulation or law. Please impress the hell out of me with your vast knowledge as you have handled this type of case many times.
That must be in your spare time when your not defending felony criminal cases where the police officers want to attack you during cross examination.
