Following receipt of a $600,000 Brownfields Grant, representatives from New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, and Oak Hill met with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 4 Brownfields Project Manager Nichole Rodgers and Stantec Practice Group Leader Miles Ballogg this morning to tour properties deemed viable for redevelopment by the Southeast Volusia Corridor Improvement Coalition. The group visited two sites in New Smyrna Beach, 110-113 Canal St. and Greenlawn Street, as well as two sites in Edgewater and one in Oak Hill.

EPA's Brownfields Program provides grants and technical assistance to assess, safely clean up, and sustainable reuse contaminated properties. Almost all communities in Florida are affected by brownfield sites, although they are not always visible. Examples include abandoned and underutilized gas stations, dry cleaners, industrial and commercial areas, manufacturing facilities, abandoned fuel tanks, and more.

Funding is available for environmental site assessments, public health monitoring, cleanup planning, and community outreach activities. If you know of a property with potential for reuse under this program, please visit https://bit.ly/3cWWfKJ for details and contact Community Resources Coordinator Irma Terry at iterry@cityofnsb.com or (386) 314-4849.
