An Area Wide Approach to Making the Modern City
City of Ogdensburg, NY
The City of Ogdensburg, NY, sits on the St. Lawrence River and the U.S./Canada border. With a rich industrial past, the City has found itself with a large area of contaminated brownfield land on the water front. By utilizing a variety of funding opportunities from various sources like the State Department and Environmental Protection Agency, the City of Ogdensburg has begun a journey of cleaning up these sites and preparing for redevelopment using a holistic, area-wide approach. With the carrot of tax breaks and liability protection, developers now have the chance to work with the City to create a mixed use water front for the 21st century.
