Okemos Cleaners Demo News ItemThe Michigan Department of Environmental, Great Lakes and Energy started demolition and remediation work in Downtown Okemos as part of the redevelopment project called The Village of Okemos.

After cleaning up the contaminated soil underground, the next step is to tear down two buildings. The building torn down on Monday, August 12th was the old dry cleaning business, Okemos Cleaners, which caused a bulk of the contamination in the southwest block of Hamilton and Okemos Road.

On Tuesday, August 13th the old white house next to the former Okemos Cleaners was demolished.
