City of Greenville Continues Development Efforts with Brownfields Assessment Grant 


Since 2000, the City of Greenville has received approximately $1.8 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) brownfield grants. These grants have helped ensure a healthy environment, and have been leveraged into more than $60 million in economic development and more than 176 jobs in the city. The EPA recently awarded the City a $300,000 assessment grant for a three-year period (2018-2021). The City will focus assessment efforts on Greenville’s west side, which includes the Southernside, West Greenville and West End neighborhoods.    

One of the first steps toward implementation will be the selection of an environmental consultant to provide technical assistance and guidance. This will be done through a formal bid process and interested parties can visit the City’s website for a listing of Invitations to Bid or subscribe to bid postings through the City’s enews notification system.

For more information about the brownfields program, contact Rebecca Edwards at 864-467-4428 or redwards@greenvillesc.gov. Details about the program can be found at greenvillesc.gov/Brownfields
