Project Type: Assessment

Activities: Phase I Environmental Site Assessments at 90 Main Street and 2 Factory Street

The City of Derby received multiple inquiries from private parties regarding city-owned parcels south of Main Street. These parcels have long been part of Derby’s central design district and are approved for high-density, mixed-use development. The City requested NVCOG apply on its behalf for Round 11 funding through the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development’s (CT DECD) Municipal Grant Program.

NVCOG was awarded $200,000 to conduct assessment activities in the Derby Main Street South project area. Environmental assessment activities will support the construction of local roads in the area and will target parcels most ready for development. The assessment project is critical to the success of the City of Derby’s $5 million Urban Act grant, which will directly fund construction of local roads and infrastructure.

Project Status: Request for Proposals released to the Regional Brownfields Partnership Environmental Assessment Services Short List. Five (5) proposals received. Project Selection Committee invited Arcadis to enter contract negotiations. To date, Arcadis has produced two (2) draft Phase I reports and has begun Phase II and Hazardous Building Materials assessment activities at 2 Factory Street, Derby.
