By Beacon Staff

Montana Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester announced recently that Kalispell will receive a $175,000 federal grant to help clean up and redevelop areas in the city’s downtown core. According to a press release from the Environmental Protection Agency, Kalispell is one of 23 communities nationwide receiving “a total of $4 million to develop plans for the reuse of brownfields properties.”

From the EPA:

Brownfields are properties where the presence or potential presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants may complicate the properties’ expansion, redevelopment or reuse.

In a prepared statement, Kalispell City Manager Jane Howington said the money will be used to “provide the planning associated with the start of a revitalizing effort in the heart of Kalispell.”
