Brownfields Update and Site Visit

Two Barre City granite sheds are currently enrolled in the RPC’s brownfields assessment initiative. Brownfields are abandoned or underutilized sites who’s redevelopment may be complicated by the presence of real or perceived contamination. With funding from the US EPA the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission’s brownfields assessment initiatives offers financial assistance to help get these sites back into productive use.

The Regional Planning Commission is coordinating a site visit to the Barre City granite sheds next week. Environmental consultants will discuss how the sites will be assessed to ensure any on-site contamination is addressed and properly managed.
