Brownfield Funds Available for Development in Fairfield, Connecticut
See the announcement from the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce:
“There is good news for those seeking to redevelop underutilized brownfield sites in the Bridgeport region. A ‘brownfield’ is a property for which redevelopment or reuse is complicated by the presence of a hazardous substance or pollutant. Metrocog, the regional planning agency to which Fairfield belongs, has funds available to assist in assessing as well as cleaning up these sites, primarily through a revolving loan fund administered by Community Capital Fund. Metrocog’s program focuses on brownfield sites in the vicinity of transit centers and corridors, but may encompass other sites throughout the region for which redevelopment has stalled due to contamination concerns. Those interested in obtaining more information about the program should contact the Department of Community & Economic Development at (203) 256-3120.”
