EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant

In 2013, a tri-city coalition of the cities of New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater and Oak Hill received a $600,000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Assessment Grant. 

Funds have been used for phase I and phase IIs environmental assessments on these properties and projects:

  • Dimmick Street at the railroad: A six-home development site.
  • 600 Canal  Street::   Future development permitting at an existing business that  was a  former gas station.
  • 103 Faulkner Street: Townhomes and commercial use now in the development stage.
  • 570 Washington Street: Formerly a 100-year-old funeral home, the building was demolished and a new funeral home building has been constructed.
  • 179 Causeway: Future development permitting at an existing business.
  • 214 Sams Avenue: Future development permitting.
  • 814 Mary Avenue: Future development permitting.
  • 1295 Kenard Street: Future development permitting at a vacant former industrial site.

Phase I and phase IIs assessments in progress:

  • 551 and 553 Julia Street:  Future green space.
  • Milford Place: For future expansion.
  • Julia and Lewis streets: Proposed Habitat for Humanity Housing

The current EPA Coalition Assessment Grant ends September 30, 2016. The City of New Smyrna Beach – as part of the tri-city coalition, supports applying for a grant for 2017-2019. New Smyrna Beach is working with the coalition’s lead agency, the City of Edgewater, to compile and submit the application to request an estimated $500,000.
