Walker County Plans Town Hall To Gather Community Input On Brownfields Grant

  • Monday, February 6, 2023

A new program to identify and develop cleanup plans for up to 30 brownfield sites in Walker County seeks community input to identify sites to assess.

Walker County will host a town hall meeting to inform residents, property owners and business leaders about what makes a site a brownfield. Information will be shared about funding available to conduct a non-intrusive assessment of environmental conditions at a potential brownfield site, and, if needed, develop a plan for cleanup.

Property owners will also learn how to apply to have their site assessed. Funding for the program comes from a $500,000 grant awarded to Walker County by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

The town hall will be Tuesday, 6:30 p.m., at Walker County Civic Center, 10052 Highway 27, Rock Spring.

Those attending include Amanda Herrit, senior environmental scientist, Terracon; Stephanie Watkins, program manager, Walker Co. Brownfields Grant Program; and Shannon Whitfield, chair, Walker County Board of Commissioners.
