Racine and USEPA partnership

From the Journal Times. A partnership between the USEPA Are-Wide Plan and the City of Racine is getting notice. The City was recently awarded nearly $900,000 in grant money to aid in cleaning up brownfield sites, riverfront redevelopment, and spurring economic development. Racine is one of 19 communities in 17 states and territories that will benefit from about $3.6 million in Environmental Workforce Development and Job Training grants awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Vandewalle & Associates helped to create the vision and implementation for the RootWorks Redevelopment area. The USEPA grant will help promote principals of the RootWorks area, including creating a sense of place, stimulating economic growth, allowing public access and improving water quality.
