Greater New Havenâs "Brownfields" sit in costly limbo By ANGELA CARTER Torrington Register Citizen (CT) May 9, 2011On an island where the Mill River flows through New Haven sits English Station, a defunct electric power plant once teeming with contaminants.
The 9-acre plant embodies every municipalityâs struggle with sites known as brownfields, abandoned plots where commercial and industrial businesses once operated, mostly at a time when environmental laws were less stringent. Throughout New Haven County, urban and suburban areas alike are grappling with the costly process of reclaiming these eyesores, cleaning up the environmental and health hazards lurking there and finding new uses for the parcels.
English Station is one of 27 brownfields on a list that cities and towns in Greater New Haven identified to the Connecticut Brownfields Redevelopment Authority as priority sites for reuse. Many are situated near major routes, highways and existing commercial hubs. Some are more isolated.
âItâs really a positive to be on the list because it attracts developers,â said Cynthia Petruzzello, vice president and redevelopment project manager for CBRA.
