Westinghouse concrete slab

Mansfield City Council agreed Tuesday to spend up to $500,000 from its PRIDE demolition fund to demolish and remediate two former Westinghouse properties -- a 13-acre concrete slab and the former "A" building (seen on the right). 

MANSFIELD -- The Richland County Land Bank on Thursday is expected to accept the donation of the 13-acre "concrete jungle" that was part of the former Westinghouse property on the city's east side.

"I am pleased to report that, barring something unforeseen, the Richland County Land Bank hopes to agree to a letter of intent to donate (the property) with the Mansfield Business Park," said Richland County Commissioner Tony Vero, a member of the Land Bank.
