   The money from the EPA will pay for asbestos removal from two buildings at the sprawling 170-acre Ludlow Mills.  A non-profit corporation has advanced a plan for commercial, industrial and some residential redevelopment of the mill complex over the next 15 years.  Aaron Saunders, a member of Ludlow’s Board of  Selectman said the project  will mean jobs and added tax revenue

   Construction started last summer on a $27 million rehabilitation hospital at the site.
