Public Meeting to Discuss Brownfield Funds Awarded to Clatsop County - 02/07/23

Feb. 7, 2022 (Astoria, OR) — A public meeting to discuss funds awarded to Clatsop County funds by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2022 is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, February 23 in the Guy Boyington Building. 

One of the legacies of the Northwest region’s rich economic past is the challenge of reusing commercial and industrial properties. This grant funds assessment and planning activities related to improving brownfield properties. Brownfield properties are abandoned, idled, or underused because site redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. 

The public is invited to the Brownfield Assessment Program kick-off meeting 5:30 p.m. Thursday, February 23 in the Guy Boyington Building or virtually. This meeting is free and open to the public. 

Attendees will hear from the Columbia Pacific Economic Development District and Stantec Inc, who will provide project management and environmental oversight to Clatsop County. Program goals will be discussed as well as how property owners can benefit from these grant funds. 

“Beyond our County’s economic development and housing goals, we look to use the grant to maintain and improve the natural environment that makes Clatsop County a beautiful area in which to live and visit,” said Monica Steele, Clatsop County assistant county manager.

Individuals with questions about the meeting or the program can contact Sarah Lu Heath at 

The Guy Boyington Building is located at 857 Commercial St. in Astoria.
