Event Description

July 2, 2010 Updated Feb 20, 2013 at 11:31 AM EDT

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.

Please plan to attend the meeting that is most convenient and beneficial to you to learn about Brownfields and how this program can benefit your community, business, and property. The Brownfield Outreach Meeting schedule is listed below:
