Brownfield Stadium

Help! I can't find any property owned by Chuck Schoninger in New Hanover County in the NHC Property Records (on line). There are 3 properties for Zephyr Land Holdings. Strange history for 111 Cowan Street (only .84 acres):

Sale Date Sale Price Grantee Grantor Book Page Sale Key
21-NOV-07 $3,859,500 ZEPHYR LAND HOLDINGS LLC EIDE ALLEN CAROLE 5253 2893 427520

There are 12 pages for this property!
Apppraised Value: $105,300

Anyway, who (what entity) actually owns the old Almont property and what did they pay?

“There’s been soil testing, ground water testing, sediment testing in the water, surface water testing,” Watson explains.

Can the city put test results on line? Who paid for these tests, the taxpayer? Wasn't there a MAJOR oil spill (over a million gallons) released on the property? I'd hardly call it a "leak."

Come on WWAY...we need your A game before we get A gamed out of tens of millions of dollars. Liability protection for the city from the Brownfield program only tells us that you can't be sued for building on a known contaminated site. That's a nice protection for the city. For the public, not so much.
