Sheridan Workshop to explain methods to clean, rebuild contaminated sites
Anyone interested in finding money to clean up abandoned buildings,
junkyards or other potentially contaminated buildings so those properties can
contribute jobs, revenue and services to the community is welcome to attend a
free, two-day seminar about the federal brownfields cleanup program Aug. 23-24
at the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Community Conference Center.
The Redevelopment Funding and Revitalization Through Brownfields workshop
will walk government officials, lenders, realtors, community developers and
others through an overview of the Environmental Protection Agency’s process for
qualifying a site as a brownfield, planning and executing a cleanup project and
applying for grant assistance along the way.
Participants will meet private developers who have enjoyed success through
the program and have the chance to speak with various agency experts who can
serve as partners in the grant process.
More than 50,000 jobs and $14 billion in new investment have stemmed from
the use of EPA brownfield grants and the resulting redevelopment.
Some of those successes can be found in Wyoming. The Evanston Roundhouse,
Stagecoach Museum in Lusk, Yttrium plant in Laramie and West Edge development
in Cheyenne have all used brownfield grant money to redevelop formerly
