Responsibilities
The City of Manistee Brownfield Redevelopment Authority was formed in 2006 by Resolution adopted 6-6-06 to facilitate the sensible redevelopment of numerous underutilized or vacant commercial and industrial properties throughout the city. The Brownfield Redevelopment Authority utilizes several sources of funding to inventory, investigate, cleanup and promote the redevelopment of Brownfield sites. Sources of funding have included Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Brownfields Grants, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) environmental cleanup grants and loans, and other State of Michigan grants to assess and/or demolish blighted properties to prepare them for redevelopment.

If you own property within the City of Manistee and are considering selling or leasing your property, are looking to acquire property within the City, or you are otherwise involved in the sale or transaction of property within the City (e.g., a realtor, attorney, accountant, banker, etc.), the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority may be able to assist with receiving financial assistance to facilitate the transaction and redevelopment/restoration of the property.
