Brownfield Cleanup Program extended to 2017

ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) – The New York State Senate has given final passage to a bill that extends the state’s Brownfield Cleanup Program to 2017.

The program provides developers with economic development incentives to clean up potentially contaminated sites and put them back to use.

Buffalo Senator Mark Grisanti, who sponsored the legislation, said it’s an important tool for economic and environmental revitalization.

The Brownfield Cleanup Program was set to expire in December 2015.

The bill has passed the Assembly and now goes to the governor for his signature. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
