The Neighborhood Corporation cleans up and redevelops
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
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.
