Revitalizing Norwalk, One Brownfield at a Time

By David Hennessey

February 15, 2008

Members of the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency met with city officials and 
the public Monday night in the Police Department Community Room to raise 
awareness and interest for the Norwalk Brownfields project.

This effort, sparked by desire to clean up, regenerate and renew 
valuable properties around the city plagued by possible contamination, 
is part of a nation-wide effort to reduce pollution and urban blight. 
The Brownfields program also aids in creating new jobs and promoting 
community vibrancy. Roughly 260 possible Brownfields have been 
identified in the area.


Amy Czerwonka, environmental scientist for Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, 
Inc., noted that the Norwalk Police Station itself is situated on 
Brownfield land. She also stated that Norwalk, known for its 
once-prevalent booming industry, is a veritable hotbed for properties 
where cleanup is a very real possibility.
