Hello Brownfields friends:
I am Virginia Aveni, Manager of the Cuyahoga County Brownfields
Redevelopment Project. We were the first USEPA Brownfields Pilot
program. Based at the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission in Cleveland,
you can check in with our web page at:
Our brownfields GIS system, Cuyahoga ROCS, will be on the web in early
This year's project will be targetted to coordinating CPC planning
resources with the Ohio EPA Geographic Initiative on redeveloping an
industrial corridor in Cleveland. CPC and Ohio EPA have performed title
and parcel searches and Phase 1 assessments on over 300 properties, the
neighborhood development corporation is prioritizing the properties
through its master plan. Sampling on target properties will begin in
the next few weeks.
Readers who are developing comments on the USEPA MOA guidance, please
share your reactions with us if you can. Thanks.
Most importantly, be aware that I have just mailed an Indians cap to
Dave Levy in Baltimore. Ha!
