Montrose Partners with Livingston County to Identify and Prioritize Brownfield Sites

Senator and Montrose employees

EPA Brownfields Awards


Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, visited the Village of Geneseo in the Rochester-Finger Lakes region to announce that Livingston and Seneca counties will each receive $1.5 million in grants from the EPA Brownfields Program to complete environmental assessments, clean up planning, and sustainable reuse planning for dozens of contaminated properties.

Montrose’s Brownfields & Community Revitalization Team members including Principal Environmental Scientist, Steve Campbell, and Project Scientist, Katie Nelson, made this possible by writing successful, compelling grant applications for the communities.

The press conference, held at a significant Brownfield site just off Main Street in the village, marked a pivotal moment in the area’s revitalization. The former laundromat, strategically located, is poised for a future as a mixed commercial/residential space. This transformation will not only create immediate job and housing opportunities, but also enhance the overall aesthetic and appeal of the neighborhood. Senator Schumer stated, “This is how we start to turn the corner on these landscapes, and how we turn these barriers into gateways.”
