Brownfields Program Underway

Brownfield Puzzle

The City of Marshalltown is pleased to announce that its Brownfields Program funded through a grant from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is underway. The program allows the City to inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct cleanup and reuse planning activities on brownfields sites.  

A brownfield is real property which the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. 

The Brownfields Program will identify potential hazards, prepare for remediation, and create new redevelopment opportunities within the downtown corridor. 

Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments can be conducted on eligible properties within the City of Marshalltown prioritizing properties within the general vicinity of the downtown corridor. These environmental site assessments will be the catalyst for reclaiming these underutilized sites for the benefit of the community. 

Stay tuned as community engagement opportunities will be conducted through the program. This process will actively solicit input regarding sites and redevelopment possibilities along with serving as an education platform regarding the perceived or known contamination at sites. A brownfields program website has been developed https://www.marshalltown-ia.gov/729/Brownfields-Program to serve as an information portal regarding program activities, public meetings, and community events.

The City of Marshalltown has selected Impact7G to serve as the qualified environmental professional for the Brownfields Program.  If you have a property that you think would be a good fit for the Brownfields Program you can complete a Request for Services form for consideration. If you would like additional information please contact Michelle Spohnheimer, Housing & Community Development Director at mspohnheimer@marshalltown-ia.gov or by phone at 641-754-5756.
