    Consistent activity and opportunity for brownfields redevelopment in southeastern Pennsylvania.

    by Brandon Brown, WFMJ

    EPA representatives and city leaders toured various blighted properties to see circumstances on the ground and to provide New Castle with EPA assessment assistance and expertise on redevelopment.

    The US Environmental Protection Agency joined federal partners to meet with New Castle and Lawrence County Economic Development leadership and community leaders to discuss how EPA can assist the city in the redevelopment of former Brownfields and sites in Opportunity Zones that had become tarnished from past industrial activity.

    Redeveloping former industrial site brownfield in Ansonia CT has support of US Senators and will be a major step in community revitalization.  

    Mayor David Cassetti and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal stood on the concrete bridge leading to the former Ansonia Copper and Brass site and looked at the sprawling 60-acre complex of vacant, rusted metal hulks that once churned out products 24/7.

    “Once we get these buildings down, we’ll have a blank canvas,” Cassetti told the senator. “A developer can paint whatever picture he wants and submit it to the city for approval.”

    New Ohio law provides long term liability protection for developers when re-openers arise. 

    Effective September 15, 2020, Ohio will join the list of states that have incorporated the federal “Bona Fide Prospective Purchaser” (“BFPP”) defense to hazardous substance liability into state law, through the enactment of House Bill 168.[1] Although Ohio has previously offered a shield to state-level liability through its Voluntary Action Program, that mechanism requires issuance of a covenant not to sue by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.[2] The new statutory BFPP defense will offer property purchasers the advantage of being “self-implementing,” requiring no affirmative government approval to take effect.

    Brownfields opportunities are international, as this story from England reminds us.  As described in this article, very high housing demand is driving the redevelopment of Brownfield properties and the number of sites vary significantly by town.

    By Andrew Nowell

    The borough has just 26 brownfield locations able to accommodate 1,468 houses, according to the engineering, design and project management consultancy firm which looked into the subject.

    However, the sites in Wigan which could be turned into housing are, on the whole, reasonably large, as the borough has 113 hectares which could be put to use. This is the fifth-largest amount of land available to GM town halls.

    New Ohio law provides long term liability protection for developers when re-openers arise. 

    by Kim Palmer

    A popular state bill that gives prospective buyers of contaminated property legal immunity in hopes of spurring redevelopment around the state was signed into law by Gov. Mike DeWine late Tuesday, June 16.

    Ohio House Bill 168 establishes immunity for costs associated with cleanup, in cases where any original contaminations resurface from an environmentally blighted property after federally approved remediation efforts were undertaken by the new owner.
