Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Former Catskills (New York) resort seeks Brownfield designation.
Grossinger’s owner seeks state aid

LIBERTY – The owner of the iconic former Grossinger’s Resort is seeking state help to clean soil contamination for what could become step one in building a 300-room hotel and 500 housing units.

In March, representatives of Sullivan Resorts, LLC, a subsidiary of owner Louis Cappelli’s Valhalla-based Cappelli Enterprises, applied for the state Department of Environmental Conservation to designate the former resort site a brownfield and offer clean-up assistance. The state may soon render a decision on the Grossinger’s site, said property manager Henry Zabatta. 

Over the next month, Cappelli hopes state officials will approve brownfield status and help pay to remove contamination his environmental consultants say came from old underground fuel tanks, dry-cleaning chemicals and other resort-related sources, Zabatta said.
