Danbury brownfields hinder development

DANBURY -- On Rose Hill Avenue on the banks of the Still River is the brownfield John F. Kennedy built.

The former Mallory Hat Co., torn down in 1998, is one of hundreds of contaminated sites around the state, and among hundreds of thousands nationwide, held back from development by its industrial past. Known as brownfields, these properties are judged either too expensive to clean up or not worth the risk to potential developers.

The state's official list of contaminated or potentially contaminated sites in Connecticut includes more than 300 locations in Danbury. They include everything from residences with leaking underground storage tanks to sprawling old factories. Only a handful have been fully assessed or cleaned up.
