Show/Hide

The Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (BRA) reviews proposals for the redevelopment of eligible property and determines what financial incentives are necessary to assist the redevelopment. The authority prepares a plan that identifies the brownfield projects. Each project section of the plan includes the description of the eligible property, the eligible activities, the TIF approach to be taken and other issues related to the subject parcels. The authority then recommends to the Township Board that the decision-making body holds a public hearing regarding the plan and subsequently acts to approve with modifications or deny the plan. The authority would recommend revisions to the plan as new projects are submitted or revisions are requested on existing plan projects.

The BRA consists of seven total members, as follows: the Township Manager, a member of the Planning Commission, Economic Development Corporation and Environmental Commission as well as three members having an interest and expertise in the fields of engineering, finance and law.

The BRA meets on-demand as projects are brought to the Township for review.  Please check the meeting calendar for specific dates and times.
