Spokane's University District Brownfields Coalition Project

EPA has selected the City of Spokane for a Brownfields Assessment Coalition Grant. Community-wide hazardous substances grant funds are to conduct approximately nine Phase I and six Phase II environmental site assessments and to prepare six cleanup plans and four reuse plans.

Community-wide petroleum grant funds are to conduct approximately five Phase I, and two Phase II, environmental site assessments and to prepare two cleanup plans and two reuse plans.

Grant funds of both types also are to update the inventory of brownfield sites and conduct community outreach activities. The target area for this grant is the 770-acre University District located along the Spokane River. Coalition partners are the University District Public Development Authority, Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane, Gonzaga University, and the Empire Health Foundation.

This project and grant funding are here to help you: understand if you have any environmental concerns, lineup a remediation plan and cleanup cost estimates, and to help you with assistance and resources to cleanup your site, if need be, for development to occur. Please review the property owner fact sheet.

  • Do you have a property in the University District?
  • Do you have a development plan?
  • Do you want to sell your property?
  • Do you want to buy a property…maybe the one next door?
  • Are you ready to take the next steps?
