Salem mayor names power plant advisers

Whatever happens on that front, Footprint has pledged to clean up and redevelop the site.

In a related development, Footprint said its environmental review showed that the property is not as polluted as some feared, and that it won’t cost as much as predicted to clean up. Estimates had run as high as $50 million to $70 million.

The company also said it soon will unveil an “iconic” design for the gas plant by a prominent New York City architecture firm.
