Elmira is getting a $31,850 state grant to come up with a plan aimed at 
revitalizing a 325-acre area on the Southside that was affected by 
industrial contamination.

The city is one of 53 municipalities awarded funds last week under the 
state Brownfield Opportunity Area program. The grant was announced 
Thursday by Mayor John Tonello during Elmira City Council's biweekly 

With brownfields in that area cleaned up, a thoughtful long-term 
development plan is needed, he said.

"This is an area that has long been neglected largely because it's 
hardly usable in its current state," Tonello said.

The area is bordered by South Main Street on the west, Erie Plaza on the 
south, the Chemung River on the north and Spaulding Street on the east.
