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:

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 Wilson Tuscarora will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. NYS OPRHP is sponsoring a multi-year project to control invasive species at Wilson-Tuscarora State Park. The proposed project includes treating invasive multiflora rose and honeysuckle throughout the park over the course of several years. The purpose of the project is to improve the ecological health of the park by removing invasive species, which threaten native species. When complete, trail access and biodiversity will improve throughout the park. The project is located in the Wilson Tuscarora State Park at 3371 Lake Road in the Town of Wilson, New York.
