    Re. “Is this site receiving a brownfield tax credit?”


    The Washtenaw County board of commissioners approved the brownfield redevelopment plan a year ago – in July 2013. It allows up to $698,773 of local and state taxes to be captured for eligible activities, administrative costs, and the Washtenaw County brownfield redevelopment authority local site remediation revolving fund over an estimated 25-year period.

    Thanks for the pointer.

    Sounds like a textbook use case for Brownfield Tax Credits and a nice addition to the city.
