The public is encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about the project and cleanup alternatives being considered.
The City of Stanwood received a grant of up to $100,000 and a line of credit of $50,000 from East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA) for the cleanup of the Brownfield site, which is adjacent to the City’s current municipal building. The City will also be applying to the IA DNR Brownfields program for additional funds. The City plans to clean-up the site to make ready for reuse. Given its location next to the current municipal building the site is ideal for expansion of the city’s municipal services buildings. The current municipal building located at 209 E Broadway St is shared with the fire department, EMS and city hall offices. The Site Revisioning Plan summarizes community outreach efforts and outlines several building expansion options to support the community’s needs. ECIA along with YTT Design will present the plans and ABCA at the public meeting. This Brownfield Cleanup Project was funded in part through a Brownfields Assessment Grant and a RLF grant that ECIA received from USEPA.
