Petroleum Sites Environmental Assessment Funds Available
Do you own a former gas station, auto dealer, auto repair shop, junkyard, parking lot, park, apartment building, and properties adjacent or nearby gas stations? Are you a local official or realtor aware of potential environmental issues with these kind of petroleum sites?
The LCRPC has EPA brownfields assessment funds that may be helpful to selling and re-developing this kind of property. Call the office at 882-5983 to learn more.
Top priority for the funds will be vacant or underused properties where there’s interest in bringing in a new business or expanding an existing business—either way, creating new jobs. The funds can also go toward recreation or conservation lands, possibly adding key acres to a town or land trust-owned property.
