The Neighborhood Corporation cleans up and redevelops Brownfield sites –properties that are polluted or contaminated by hazardous substances — that can be a major source of neighborhood disinvestment. Revitalizing these blighted properties is an important part of our mission to promote the health, vitality, and livability of the Greater Taunton area.
Nu-Brite Redevelopment Project
In 2007, The Neighborhood Corporation (TNC) made an accepted offer to purchase the property. The vision to reuse this irregularly shaped 2.7 acre parcel of land is becoming closer to reality. TNC, in partnership with the City of Taunton Office of Economic and Community Development, received EPA Brownfield revolving loan/grant funding for complete remediation of the Nu-Brite property. The scheduled clean up finished winter 2011 and pre-development plans are underway to build 3 residential lots with 9 housing units, green space and additional commercial parking for Weir Village businesses.
