How is the City encouraging the redevelopment of Brownfields?
The City's Environmental Remediation and Site Enhancement (ERASE) Community Improvement Plan is a set of programs designed to encourage and promote brownfield redevelopment.
Brownfields are defined generally as:
Hamilton is one of the oldest and most heavily industrialized cities in Canada and includes a large number of brownfields in Hamilton’s older industrial areas, downtown, and throughout the urbanized area.
Does the City offer incentives to remediate Brownfields?
If you are a property owner or purchaser of potentially contaminated land within the urban area you may be eligible to apply for a number of Programs through the ERASE CIP. Grants are available from the City of Hamilton to pay for certain eligible costs towards the assessment and remediation of brownfield properties.
