Field Investigation Observations

Land Use

On-site Landuse
This site is primarily used for parking. The southern extent of the site overlaps onto the Downtown Visitors Center and may extend further south to include the rear of businesses along 4th Street.



Adjacent Landuse
The area around this site is primarily commercial uses with a small area of residential use, a new apartment building (Site T21 W 4th Street) to the west. To the north are a large fenced parking area and one structure (Site T33). To the east on the same block immediately adjacent to the tannery is a small grass and soil area (200 W 5th Street & 423-425 N Orange Street). Row homes and the Salvation Army Community Center are found across Orange Street to the east. To the south on the same block are a number of commercial enterprises including an electrician, chiropractor, barber, pizza, lighting store, radiator repair shop and the Downtown Visitors Center.


Presence of Children

The blocks to the west are residential and adjacent Site T21 is an apartment complex. With little open space available, children may play in the parking lot in the evenings and weekends.


Exposed Soil

A small grass and soil area is just outside of the tannery outline to the east. The site itself is entirely paved or structure.
