Brownfield meeting set Wednesday

September 17, 2013

The city of West Point is hosting an open session to the public at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the upstairs board room of City Hall in an effort to isolate properties throughout the city in need of an environmental assessment.

In May, the Environmental Protection Agency awarded the city $400,000 in brownfield assessment grants, for the purposes of targeting areas of potential environmental contamination and determining the necessity of cleanup. According to the EPA website, brownfields are classified as “real property, the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.”
