The City of Belfast has been awarded a US Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Assessment 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, provide liability protections, to help revitalize these properties, and/or to protect the
environment and public health.
