New York State is providing a total of $2 million to 13 communities throughout the state as part of the state’s Brownfield Opportunity Areas Program, and the city of Utica is one of the recipients, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Each of the plans focuses on transforming blighted properties in urban areas into “community assets and catalysts for neighborhood-wide revitalization,” according to Cuomo. The grants will help with things such as environmental impact assessments, marketing to attract developers and investors, and studies to determine the best use of the sites involved.

The grant awarded to the city of Utica is for $199,610. The city will complete a Brownfield Opportunity Area Nomination Study for a 1,705-acre site along the old Erie Canal and main railroad corridor in Utica.

Regarding the city of Utica’s grant, the release states:

"The objectives to be achieved by this project include facilitation of future investment and growth through focused community-based planning, strategic investment and marketing; conversion of properties from dormant brownfields to active buildings; and the revitalization of city areas that have high historic interest, underutilized natural resources, or architectural potential."
