Brownfield Outreach Meeting

 

Adams County Brownfield Outreach Meeting – February 28, 2013 @ 2:00 PM

The Northeast Indiana Brownfield Coalition has scheduled Brownfield Outreach Meetings in each Coalition county.  The Brownfield Coalition, comprised of 7 area counties (Adams, Allen excluding Fort Wayne, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley excluding Columbia City) has received a Brownfield’s Coalition Grant from the EPA to conduct environmental assessments of potential Brownfield properties within the coalition counties.  The overall goal of the Brownfield Coalition is to promote economic development in the form of expansion, redevelopment, or development at potential Brownfield sites. 

The Brownfield Coalition is currently seeking properties to be assessed.  The purpose of the Outreach meetings in each county is to provide information regarding the assessment program to county and city officials, police and fire representatives, county and city building officials, redevelopment commission members, developers, realtors, and commercial bankers.  The participation of the entities listed above is integral to the success of this program and in identifying potential properties that would benefit from assessment.  In addition, interested property owners and the general public are encouraged to attend. 

The Brownfield Outreach Meeting in Adams County has been scheduled for Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 2:00 PM at the Riverside Center, Garden Room, 231 E Monroe St, Decatur, IN 46733.  Please plan to attend to learn about Brownfields and how this program can benefit your community, business, and property.
