Nashua officials: Failure to fix millyard chimney could be costly
Last week, the aldermanic finance committee recommended spending $762,300 to reinforce the chimney at its existing height of 165 feet.
According to Deane, it could cost between $300,000 and $500,000 to dispose of the chimney that stands in the middle of the Nashua Millyard. Deane said there are other unknown costs associated with removing the chimney.
Mayor Donnalee Lozeau echoed those concerns, saying the record of decision for the parkway could be reopened by federal regulators, and the city could be forced to undergo a new historical mitigation project if the chimney is not preserved as originally planned.
To date, about $2 million in historical components for the Broad Street Parkway have already been spent, according to Lozeau.
The Millyard chimney, which has been owned by the city since 1991, is part of the system that powered the mills with steam about a century ago. The Millyard — including its chimney — has been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places because of its start in 1826.
