ADEQ Announces $97,630 Brownfield Grant Award to the Town of Camp Verde, Yavapai, AZ
ADEQ officials announced today a $97,630 Brownfields Grant award to the Town of Camp Verde to revitalize the downtown area by performing an Asbestos and Lead-Based Paint Abatement on the old library building, removing it and making way for expanded parking for the newly constructed Camp Verde Community Library.
The abatement will allow the library to safely park more patrons and hold more community events. Since opening the new 17,000 square-foot facility in November 2016, the Camp Verde Community Library has seen more than 26,700 visitors, issued 500 new library cards and held more than 124 community events. The Brownfields Grant abatement of the old library building is scheduled for completion by mid-March.

Redeveloping brownfields has the potential to reduce environmental hazards, mitigate public health threats, create new business opportunities, increase tax revenue and restore habitats and blighted areas to productive use. Program funds are limited and available to eligible applicants.
Established in 2003, ADEQ’s Brownfields Assistance Program conducts projects through Arizona’s State Response Grant using funds provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. The program has funded more than 70 projects, assisting local governments, schools, hospitals, nonprofits and tribes in completing environmental assessments and cleanups.
