Brownfield

Sites.

Like many Midwest communities, Elkhart is faced with land and groundwater contamination issues that are the remnants of a historic and prosperous industrial past. In recent years, contamination issues have hampered real-estate property transactions, causing the underutilization of properties and increasing the blight and disinvestment in Elkhart neighborhoods.

Brownfield
Program.

.

.

During an inventory that was conducted in 2008, it was estimated that Elkhart contains close to 100 brownfield sites.
The State of Indiana defines a brownfield site as a parcel of real estate that is abandoned or inactive or may not be operated at its appropriate use and on which expansion or redevelopment is complicated because of the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, a contaminant, petroleum, or a petroleum product that poses a risk to human health or the environment.  Examples of brownfields include:
  •      Former industrial sites
  •      Inactive or underutilized gasoline stations
  •      Properties containing underground storage tanks
  •      Old railroad properties
Current Projects
700  West Beardsley Ave.
1032 East Beardsley Ave.
511 Division St.
1101 East Beardsley Ave.
1701 Sterling Ave.
2101 South Main St.
700 block of South Main St.
Past Projects
LaBour Pump (1607 Sterling Ave.)
Elkhart Foundry (318 Elkhart Ave.)
Elkhart Armory (200 N. Main St.)

Targeted 

Development Regions.

Elkhart’s Downtown Main Street has made major improvements in recent years, including sustaining more active restaurants, retail, art galleries, and market-rate housing available above downtown merchants. For such downtown development to be deemed successful, the market must respond by actively redeveloping the neighborhoods surrounding downtown Main Street.
