What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html.

The action involves shoreline restoration to achieve flood resiliency measures across the City's municipal waterfront areas.

Along the Oswegatchie River, complete repair and replacement of the existing seawall system to 2 foot above existing wall heights and back slope will be graded to increase the minimum elevation of the maple City Trail to elevation +253 foot. The project is located in the city Ogdensburg, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The City of Ogdensburg Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Reconstruction of Fort de La Presentation Trail Network will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Fort La Presentation Association for improvements to the existing trail located at the confluence of the Oswegatchie River with the St. Lawrence River. The site consists of a 21.05 acre parcel located on Route 68. The purpose of the proposed project is to elevate the existing trails within flood prone areas of the site, install a berm along the St. Lawrence River to reduce flooding impacts, and a living shore system along the Oswegatchie River to substantially secure the shoreline from future erosion. Funding for these improvements will be provided in part from New York State Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI) through the New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The project is located on Albany Avenue in the city Ogdensburg, New York.
