Project Title & Description
City of Lowell's Brownfields Assessment Program
This assistance agreement will provide funding to the City of Lowell to inventory, characterize, and assess brownfields sites in Lowell, Massachusetts. One of the primary areas for this project is the Ayers City Industrial Park. This is an urban renewal district in Lowell with numerous brownfields. The city is looking to modern flexible industrial space to attract new manufacturing businesses to the city and provide good wage jobs to the community. Brownfields are real property, the expansion, development or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.
