The Sherman Avenue Project Area Committee is seeking a Revolving Loan Fund sub-grant from the City of Springfield Brownfields program which is funded through a grant provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

The purpose of the project is to provide environmental cleanup for lead-based paint and asbestos for the rehabilitation of the property located at 1130 N. Sherman Avenue. A presentation on this project and the Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) was given during an open public meeting of the Sherman Avenue Project Area Committee on Tuesday July 9.
