Rome Receives $350,000 For Brownfield Sites

Luke Tubia, WIBX

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is announcing a $350,000 grant for the Erie Boulevard Revitalization Plan.

The grant comes from the Brownfield Opportunity Areas program.

The plan includes a 437 acre area with 73 potential brownfield sites around the West Dominick Street corridor of downtown Rome as well as West Rome’s residential neighborhood.

Redeveloped Brownfield sites in Rome can potentially increase property values up to 15 percent within a quarter mile of the redeveloped site and could also create an average of 91 jobs.

“Redeveloping hazardous Brownfield locations will allow us to make the properties viable again,” said Assemblyman Brindisi. “We can spur local job growth, attract new investments to the area and ensure that the Mohawk Valley is a vibrant, healthy place to raise our families.”

Brownfields are areas that are currently unusable for site development because of the presence or potential presence of contamination by hazardous waste or pollution.
