Middletown cleanup efforts may reduce with state change By Michael D. Pitman Middletown Journal (OH) April 30, 2012Middletown’s goal of cleaning up former industrial sites littered throughout the city could be hampered by a change in state policy.
Officials said JobsOhio’s goal to change brownfield remediation funding from a grant-based program to offering low-interest loans would reduce the number projects around the state that are started next year.
Middletown has relied on grants from the state in the past to clean up former industrial sites like Aeronca and a non-industrial site like Middletown Regional Hospital. The city’s goal is to make these sites available for future development and job growth.
On July 1, the state will hand the Clean Ohio Brownfield Remediation program to JobsOhio, the nonprofit formed by Gov. John Kasich in 2011 to focus on job creation. The project has been operated by the state’s department of development since the Clean Ohio program was voted on in 2000.
