BROWNFIELD DEVELOPMENT

The Waterbury Development Corporation, in partnership with the City, categorizes city-wide brownfields in order to determine the conditions that may have impeded the reuse of the sites; determines the human health and ecological health risks; estimates the cost of remediating individual sites; and when possible, acquire and remediate a site.

A Center City Brownfields Corridor was established as a guide for a strategic, targeted approach for using brownfield assessment funds and to redevelop challenged areas based on the following goals:

  • Smart Growth Redevelopment
  • Public transportation accessibility for Transit Oriented Development
  • Soliciting developer interest
  • Support the cross-cutting federal funding concept
  • Provide a base for discussion and preparation of an area redevelopment plan
  • Insure access to the Enterprise Zone
