EAST SPENCER — The town of East Spencer was awarded a $400,000 federal Brownfields assessment grant, making it possible to have property assessed that could lead the town to clean up and redevelop historical property.
East Spencer was one of two North Carolina towns that received the grant; Richmond City is the other.
In the next two weeks, work will commence on developing the work plan and project schedule. Included in the plans are to evaluate and assess six to eight sites for future redevelopment. Through the grant, the town will also be able to test other vacant sites in town to determine future development potential. The project will get underway in 60 to 90 days and will require two to three years to complete.
