Thomas Brownfields Project


The U.S. EPA has selected the city of Thomas for a 2014 Brownsfield Hazardous Subsances Cleanup grant of $200,000

The Team will assess several City of Thomas properties with known or potential hazardous contamination with the intent of preparing these properties for redevelopment and reintroduction back into the market. 

Sites that focus on economic reuse will have the highest likelihood for redevelopment. Thomas's Historic Commercial Downtown and Riverfront Property will be targeted. 

The City's Riverfront Property will be the city's potential feature attraction that would transform Thomas into a greater destination town. 

These efforts align with local strategic plans, including the City of Thomas Riverfront Development Plan and the City of Thomas Strategic Plan update.
