Omaha Brownfields’ Coalition South Omaha Area-Wide PlanBack
In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Brownfields Area-Wide Planning (AWP) program to provide assistance to communities facing brownfields challenges. The brownfields AWP is a grant program which enhances the EPA’s core brownfields assistance programs (e.g. brownfields assessment grants) by helping communities perform the research needed to develop an area-wide plan for brownfields assessment, cleanup and reuse.
This resulting Area-Wide Planning document provides direction for future brownfields cleanup, reuse and related improvements in South Omaha.
