Brownfield Grant Success Stories
BROWNFIELD GRANT SUCCESS STORIES
The City of Medina (City) received a FY11 Community-Wide Brownfields Assessment Grant from the US EPA, which included $500,000 for the assessment of hazardous substances and $500,000 for the assessment of petroleum substances. As the lead coalition member and grant recipient, the City used the grant funds to assess properties and quantify risks to human health and the environment within the City of Medina, the Village of Chippewa Lake, and the Townships of Medina, Montville, Lafayette, and York.
The City used U.S. EPA funds to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments, remedial planning and design, and community outreach at brownfield properties that are currently underutilized and abandoned. Funds helped the City determine potential risks to human health and the environment, and plan for cleanup to eliminate these risks and promote sustainable redevelopment. This video provides testimonials from property owners on the accomplishments achieved under this grant.
