Michigan’s Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act, Public Act of 381 of 1996, as amended, enables Brownfield Redevelopment in the State of Michigan and the establishment of brownfield authorities and zones. PA 381 provides brownfield redevelopment authorities with multiple tools to facilitate redevelopment, including tax increment financing to support eligible brownfield expenses incurred through reuse of a contaminated, blighted, historic, and/or functionally obsolete property.
On December 4, 2000, the Albion City Council adopted a resolution establishing the City of Albion Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (ABRA) in accordance with Act 381. Under the Bylaws established by the ABRA and approved by the Albion City Council as adopted on June 4, 2001, the Albion EDC Board of Directors will be the same as the ABRA.
PURPOSE: The ABRA exists to identify and treat environmentally distressed areas, including those which are functionally obsolete or blighted, in order to promote revitalization in the Albion brownfield redevelopment zone, which is congruent with the city limits of the City of Albion.
Albion Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) staff is available to assist with implementation of the policies and procedures described herein. AEDC staff will serve as a liaison between the ABRA and the various entities involved with the redevelopment of a brownfield site and guide a developer through the brownfield process. It is strongly encouraged to contact staff early in the project planning process to minimize delays in the approval process.
