Brownfield redevelopment is a vital element of the City of Wyoming's economic development activities. Our Brownfield Plan, established in 1997, addresses properties that are abandoned, idled or underutilized due to the perception or fact that it is contaminated with hazardous substances. Properties with obsolete buildings may also be eligible for Brownfield activities.
Our Brownfield Redevelopment Authority:
- Owns Site 36, a former automobile manufacturing property which is available for sale and redevelopment.
- Proactively manages environmental issues affecting City properties.
- Encourages the use of existing infrastructure rather than constructing water, sewer, roads, etc. on greenfields
- Approves financing plans to capture new state and local property taxes resulting from the development and clean up of environmentally contaminated sites or redevelopment of sites with obsolete buildings.
- Focuses on specific remediation and financing for Brownfield redevelopment activities.
Eligible investments include demolition, construction or improvement of a building after it has been identified in our Brownfield Plan as a targeted Brownfield development.
