Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) has been retained by a growing local industrial company to assist with the Brownfield redevelopment of vacant industrial land located in Muskegon County, Michigan. With a history of over 100 years of heavy industrial activity, the environmental integrity of this property has been compromised, requiring the need for significant Brownfield redevelopment incentives to facilitate the project. LEI has been tasked with procuring Brownfield redevelopment funds to assist with comprehensive assessment of the property and response activities to ensure safe redevelopment. LEI will complete a Baseline Environmental Assessment, Due Care Plan, and other documents to protect the developer and end user.
The redevelopment will involve the construction of a new industrial facility, which will result in improved environmental and aesthetic conditions on the property, significantly increased tax revenue for the community, and new job creation. Construction activities are expected to commence in the fall of 2014.
