Governor Cuomo announced yesterday $10 million in Brownfield Opportunity Areas grants for 26 communities throughout the state.In our area, Lewis County and the Village of Lyons Falls will receive $553,761 tocomplete an implementation strategy to return four brownfield sites back to productive use with an emphasis on redevelopment of the abandoned Lyons Falls pulp and paper mill site to create business opportunities, increase employment and complete improvements in Downtown Lyons Falls. Brownfields are defined as dormant properties where the presence or potential presence of contamination has impeded site redevelopment, turning the properties into economic and environmental drains on localities. The grants provide funding for municipalities to implement revitalization strategies that are necessary in order to redevelop impacted sites. Once redeveloped, brownfield sites become community assets that can attract businesses, jobs, and ultimately expand the local tax base.
