Development Authority grants city $200,000 to clean up area

Great Falls Tribune (MT)
May 29, 2008

The Great Falls Development Authority board of directors voted Wednesday to give the city of Great Falls a $200,000 grant to help clean up land in the West Bank Urban Renewal District, a designated Brownfield area.

The city plans to extend 4th Street Northwest to be a second access point to the new federal building. The grant will help them clean up the land under that extension, said GFDA President Brett Doney.

The board discussed at length whether to grant the money to the city, or save it to use as loans to other entities.

Designated Brownfield lands are environmentally contaminated areas that have federal funds available for their cleanup. The Development Authority holds a Brownfield Loan Fund that contains $918,000. It received the money more than three years ago and hasn't given out any of it.
