City of Belfast Brownfields Assessment Program

The City of Belfast has been awarded a United States Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Grant for conducting environmental assessments and cleanup planning at eligible properties in Belfast. For owners, developers, and/or prospective purchasers of commercial and industrial properties in Belfast that have redevelopment potential, but are currently vacant or underutilized due to known or perceived contamination from by petroleum or other potential hazardous materials (or just the perception of contamination), the City can provide the owner or future purchaser with an environmental assessment and/or cleanup plan for that property at no charge, in order to provide environmental due diligence in support of bank financing, to document the environmental liabilities and associated cleanup costs, to help revitalize these properties, and/or to protect the environment and public health. For more information, please view the full grant opportunity. You may also contact Economic Development Director Thomas Kittredge at 207-338-3370, extension 116 to ask questions about the program.
