ADEQ Announces $7,835 Brownfields Grant Award to the Town of Miami, Gila County, AZ

ADEQ officials announced today a $7,835.00 Brownfields Grant award to the Town of Miami to help the Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum expand its exhibits by making use of the basement of its historic building located at 150 North Plaza Circle in Miami. Current museum exhibits document the economic, social and cultural history of Miami. As part of the expansion, the museum plans to create a mining exhibit.

Brownfields Grant funds will be used to perform an asbestos and lead-based paint survey of the basement and attached crawl spaces to identify the type and amount of any asbestos containing materials (and lead-based paint as a component) that are present and require abatement before the basement can be used. The survey also will provide an estimate of associated clean-up costs.

ADEQ Brownfields Assistance Program

Established in 2003, ADEQ’s BAP 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 entities from local governments, schools, hospitals and nonprofits to tribes in completing environmental assessments, cleanup and restoration.

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 in the order that they apply and qualify.
