Brownfield Revitalization Master Plan City of Alexandria, LA

Project Overview

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded the City of Alexandria, Louisiana a $300,000 Assessment Grant to be fully utilized prior to September 30, 2023. The focus of the grant is to provide Phase One Environmental Site Assessments, Phase Two Environmental Site Assessments, Regulatory Reporting, and Remediation and Reuse Planning.

Revitalizing a brownfield starts with understanding Alexandria’s site reuse goals and how they align with local economic, infrastructure, social and environmental conditions.

Specific planning activities were utilized throughout the Planning Process to ensure compliance with EPA Guidelines and to provide a full spectrum of planning assessments that would provide insight for short- and long-term development goals.

  • Site Reuse Assessment
  • Land Use Assessment
  • Market Study
  • Infrastructure Evaluation
  • Community Health Assessment
  • Site Disposition Strategy

The City of Alexandria recognized opportunities along Bolton Avenue, Lee Street, and Arial Drive for reinvestment that will create a more vibrant commercial district, gathering places for citizens of the community, and a more pedestrian and bike friendly community. The plan includes market-based data that informs the City of the potential to support additional development, before and after drawings of key sites and buildings, plan vignettes, and branding concepts designed to market specific districts of the City.
