Brownfield Redevelopment

Creation, Purpose and Management
In October 2006 the Osceola County Board of Commissioners created the Osceola County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority ("Authority").  The Authority was created to assist in the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of real property which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.  Responsibility for management of the Brownfield program rests with the County's Community Development office.
 

Grant History

2007-2012: $400,000 Assessment Grant, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
In 2007 Osceola County received a $400,000 Brownfield Assessment grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  From 2007-2012 the Osceola County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority completed 40 Environmental Site Assessments, 9 Baseline Environmental Assessments, 4 Due Care Plans, and 1 Brownfield Plan.  The $400,000 EPA grant resulted in private sector investments of $26,550,000, 109 temporary jobs, and 147 full-time jobs.

2018-Present: $83,000 Assessment Grant, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)
In 2018 Osceola County received an $83,000 Brownfield Assessment grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).  This project is in progress.  The Osceola County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority will be using the grant to conduct site assessments at four sites in order to facilitate the sale of property to three businesses and remove blight at one other site.
