Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Brown-to-Green plan for Huntington Park, California
Huntington Park [California] Brown-to-Green Implementation Plan

Communities for a Better Environment
September, 2013

Executive Summary

In 2010, Communities for a Better Environment (CBE) received a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct research, receive technical assistance, and undergo training to create an area-wide plan and implementation strategy to redevelop brownfield sites. A permissible use of the grant funds included facilitating civic engagement in the brownfield remediation planning process.

Over the course of the project, CBE conducted extensive community outreach, including facilitating planning workshops, focus group discussions, and brownfield training sessions.

The discussions were centered on a 100-acre site in northwest of City of Huntington Park (CA), which contained a number of brownfields. The Brown-to-Green project area is bounded by Slauson Avenue to the north, Cottage Avenue to the east, Gage Avenue to the south, and Wilmington Avenue to the west ...

The Project Area has long been home to heavy manufacturing operations which have cvause soil and groundwater contamination throughout the area. The economic downturn has stalled the City of Huntington Park's efforts to redevelop the brownfield area.
