Gov. Shumlin announces innovative program to jumpstart brownfield redevelopment

Vt Digger - - 9:26 am Thu Jun 20th, 2013

Gov. Peter Shumlin, EPA New England Brownfields Director Carol Tucker and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, along with representatives from Vermont's congressional delegation, launched a new program today that will advance the redevelopment of brownfields, former industrial or commercial properties that are contaminated from historical uses making it difficult or impossible to put them to new uses.

In addition, six Vermont organizations redeveloping brownfields were awarded funding for that work from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The program, called the Brownfield Economic Revitalization Alliance (BERA), will be jointly administered by Vermont's Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), and Agency of Natural Resources (ANR). BERA was created to quickly and efficiently move complex brownfield projects to redevelopment, fostering new economic opportunities as a result.
