Brownfield research may give green light to Loves Park retail|
By Bridget Tharp ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR (IL) December 21, 2006
LOVES PARK - The city is asking for grant money to study about 30 potential brownfield sites in hopes of preparing the Illinois 251 corridor for new development.
With Illinois 251, which also is North Second Street, connecting the city to Machesney Park and Rockford, the road carries the lifeblood of Loves Park. Any improvements for North Second could provide a boost for the city, which hopes to keep pace with rapid growth and development along nearby Illinois 173 in Machesney Park.
But brownfields, which are lands with polluted soil or groundwater, can stunt an areas growth. Most sites are old gas stations that operated before regulations that prevented dumping toxic substances. Other spots include old factories and dry cleaners. And cleaning one up can be expensive and complicated.
