Last week, Gov. Dannel Malloy announced the award of $27 million in grants and loans that will fund 20 remediation and redevelopment projects throughout Connecticut. This is the fifth round of brownfield funding spearheaded by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).
The awards comprise 14 grants to municipalities and economic development agencies, totaling over $20 million, and six loans to project developers and owners and a municipal agency, totaling over $6 million. In his press release, Gov. Malloy noted that most projects awarded funding in this round include a housing component (both market-rate and affordable housing) as part of their redevelopment plans.
The governor also stated that, with this round of awards, Connecticut has allocated nearly $90 million in state money to brownfield funding since 2011. He compared this amount to the $190 million invested nationally by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency since 1995.
Among the larger of DECD's fifth-round awards were:
On March 20, Craig Gianetti, a partner in Day Pitney's Real Estate & Land Use group and secretary of the New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) Land Use Section, will be moderating and speaking at the 2019 Land Use Update, a program presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) and being held at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick, NJ.
Craig Gianetti and Nicole Magdziak co-authored an article, "An Update on Redevelopment and Pilots," published by Dimensions, a newsletter of the New Jersey Builders Association.
On March 9, Beth Barton will be speaking at the Water: Public Trust Resource? Private Resource? Or Both? conference being held at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT.
