Pershing County / Lovelock / WNDD Brownfields Program
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grants money to assess and clear properties, known as "Brownfields,' that are planned for reuse or redevelopment. Brownfields sites can include properties that are vacant, ore are abandoned or underutilized sites that may suffer real or perceived contamination. Participation in our Brownfields Initiative will direct EPA grant funds to investigate and clear Brownfield sites in and around Lovelock including community gateways, the industrial park and the downtown corridor.
The Brownfields Initiative is a key element of the Pershing County Economic Development Strategic and Revitalization Plan, adopted by the Pershing County Economic Development Authority, which was facilitated by WNDD. Grant funds also will be used to conduct reuse planning for high priority sites, develop downtown/gateway revitalization strategies and conduct community involvement activities.
