The Redevelopment and Brownfields Programs began in May 2001. The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders, with a desire to help its municipalities, decided to institute theBROWNFIELDS/ REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM .
This program was created to help equip every municipality through redeveloping difficult properties and thereby building a more balanced and sustainable tax base while enhancing the quality of life. The Brownfields program, through an Environmental Engineering group, provided services to all 24 municipalities in Gloucester County. The PMK Group assisted each municipality by creating a data base on every brownfield location and are available to prepare grant applications for contamination investigations and site clean-ups based on their priorities.
This program is helping municipalities create redevelopment opportunities in infrastructured and environmentally sensitive areas. Communities are reinvesting in vacant and underutilized areas such as old landfills, gas stations, and century old factories thus spurring economic development and a more balanced tax base.
The Redevelopment portion of the program provides the County financed professional team planners for the purpose of creating redevelopment areas based on the priorities of each municipality.
Each municipality is invited to participate in the program.
