EPA Grant to Fund Assessment in Brownfield Sites in Western Suburbs
The EPA has awarded a $600,000 grant to Cook County and a coalition of seven western suburbs, including Franklin Park to assess potentially contaminated properties and their redevelopment potential.
"Intergovernmental cooperation and collaboration allows us to work together to leverage grant funding that we may not be able to secure on our own," stated Franklin Park Mayor Barrett Pedersen. "This grant will help to address environmental issues that hinder redevelopment and to ultimately attract new investment to our community."
The County’s Department of Environmental Control has begun working with coalition member communities on next steps.
