A new grade for Connecticut brownfield redevelopment - new
by Ann Catino, Halloran & Sage LLP New England Real Estate Journal July 18-24, 20142014 is half completed, but with the evolving brownfield landscape in Connecticut, the state's brownfield stewardship report card for 2014 already deserves an A rating. Several new initiatives are underway - both from the state administration and legislature. Each year, the state continues to bolster its programs and funding in order to prioritize and stimulate brownfield development in all municipalities. The first six months are setting a new standard for resurrecting these properties and turning them again into productive use.
First, as of January 28, Tim Sullivan was appointed the new state director of brownfield, waterfront and transit-oriented development within the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development. He previously served in New York City under the mayor Bloomberg administration, where he was the chief of staff to the deputy mayor for Economic Development. For the first time, Connecticut has a director focused on overseeing all the state programs focused on redeveloping the state's brownfields and spearheading the funding and liability relief programs, coordinating with municipalities, businesses, developers and the banking community. He is to captain brownfield projects and pull together the various agencies in state government so that efficient development may occur and a project may be developed successfully.
