HAVERHILL — A prime piece of land on the Merrimack River in Haverhill has been sitting vacant since the old Paperboard Company closed there.
City officials said the site that has become an illegal dumping ground is now in the hands of new owners, who have yet to submit any plans to the city.
“The best way to stop it is to have the area developed in one fashion or another as vacant properties pose a lot of dangers,” said Mayor James Fiorentini. “We are very interested in meeting with the developer to see what they have in mind.”
According to the city assessor’s office, the 58-acre property, which is assessed at $1.2 million, was transferred to the new owner, 100 South Kimball LLC of 208 Beacon St., Marblehead, on Dec. 14.
According to the Secretary of State’s Corporation Division, those involved with that domestic limited liability company include Geoffrey P. Noyes, B. Pike Noyes, Peter W. Noyes and Tara N. Newcombe.
A message left with Geoffrey Noyes was not returned in time for publication of this story.
In December 2011, Brian Wilson of the Barrow Development Group purchased the 23-acre Haverhill Paperboard Co. site at 100 S. Kimball St.
