Project Title & Description
Brownfields Area Wide Planning (BF AWP) Project for Groundwork Hudson Valley
This project provides funding for Groundwork Hudson Valley to conduct area-wide planning for brownfields in Yonkers, New York. The area-wide plan will inform brownfields assessment, cleanup, and reuse activities. The grantee will conduct community involvement activities to identify community priorities, research the existing conditions of the brownfields area, determine reuses for brownfield sites, and develop a detailed brownfields area-wide plan and implementation strategy. The project will increase the capacity of local stakeholders to carry out brownfields renewal projects. Groundwork Hudson Valley will create an area-wide re-use plan that incorporates community priorities and that connects to other Yonkers, New York City, and national community renewal initiatives.
