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.

Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Woody Invasive Species Control will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the control/removal of invasive species which are encroaching upon native flora that rare and migratory birds utilize. Woody invasive species (buckthorn spp., honeysuckle spp., multiflora rose, autumn olive, Japanese barberry) will be controlled over several years through a combination of mechanical and chemical removal methods. The project is located in the Joseph Davis State Park at 4143 Lower River Road in Youngstown, Town of Lewiston, New York.
