EPA: Indiana demolition site cleanup years in waiting will start soon
The Marion Star
A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency official's announcement that cleanup of an unfinished demolition site on Joseph Street in Marion, Indiana, will begin soon is welcome news to Greg Wallen.

The site, where a series of companies operated factories for years, has been an eyesore to neighbors along the four city blocks surrounding it for nearly three years.

By Greg Witz

In it, he talks about companies that have successfully created frameworks for decisive action. Highly marketed and distributed, this article was published in the April 2006 issue of the Harvard Business Review and met with many accolades. However, it's almost 10 years later, and the problem exists even more profoundly today.
