BROWNFIELDS GRANT PROGRAM

In 2010, the City of Arlington was awarded $400,000 in grant funding from the EPA to conduct community wide Brownfields site assessments over the next three years. $200,000 is reserved for Hazardous Substances Assessments and $200,000 is reserved for Petroleum Assessments. This is the second Brownfield Grant awarded by the EPA to the City of Arlington. In the 2006 grant program cycle, 36 properties received funding for environmental assessments.

As defined by EPA, a Brownfield is “real property, the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant.”

The City recognizes that Brownfields redevelopment, along with sustainable development, is essential to the economic vitality of Arlington. As such, the grant funding will be used not only to conduct petroleum and hazardous substance assessments, but also to create a comprehensive site cleanup and redevelopment plan for identified problem areas.

Brownfields Program Benefits
Learn how you could benefit from the City's Brownfields Program


Searching for Brownfield Properties

Search for potential Brownfield properties using the City's online Brownfields Database or ArcIMS MultiService Viewer. The purchaser or developer can qualify for the program with a completed access agreement from the property owner. Priority will be given to properties with the greatest potential for improvement and the most evident community benefits. (Sites must be located within Arlington city limits.)

Brownfields Database     ArcIMS MultiService Viewer

Click here to view the Training Manual for the ArcIMS MultiService Viewer. Once the map application is open, you will need to add "Planning" under the Map Services feature in order to view the “Brownfields” layer. You can use the Identify tool (located above the map) when the "Brownfields" layer is selected as your active layer to access the link to the property's record in the online Brownfields Database.

Please note that the inclusion of a property within the Brownfields layer in ArcIMS or in the online Brownfields Database does not necessarily mean that the property is contaminated. It simply identifies a past use that had the potential to cause contamination or it is making available to the public an environmental assessment report that the City conducted on the site.


Target Areas

Although this is a citywide process, specific regions of Arlington will serve as target areas.

Areas targeted for petroleum assessments:  Central Arlington and East Arlington Areas targeted for hazardous substances assessments:  Central Arlington, East Arlington, Great Southwest Industrial district, and South Arlington

The City welcomes input from citizens and other interested groups.  If you would like to be involved in this project or simply kept updated on its progress, please send an e-mail to PlanningDevelopment@arlingtontx.gov with your name and contact information.
