Here are some before and after photos from various Brownfields sites that the SWCRPC has worked on.
Goodyear Solar in Windsor
2,000 tons of asbestos containing building debris was removed and a $1.4 million solar array was installed. The site is now generating 500 kilowatts of solar power towards the region’s renewal energy goal and has eliminated a hazardous exposure risk to the community.
Windsor Station Restaurant
Windsor Station Restaurant & Bar Room in Windsor, VT is a 1900’s historic train depot converted into a beautiful full menu restaurant with a lot of original pieces and stories of its history on display.
Windsor Welcome Center
The Windsor Welcome Center was a former Foundry building in Windsor, VT, and is now a meeting house and welcome center for the Town of Windsor.
Edgar May Health & Recreation Center
The former Springfield Foundry Plant #4 building in Springfield, VT, was converted to the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center in 2016, offering aquatic and healthy living programs for all ages and abilities.
Ascutney Mountain Base Lodge
After Ascutney Mountain’s Base Lodge burned, SWCRPC Brownfields Reuse Program provided the funding to remove asbestos-containing materials which allowed for Ascutney Outdoors to purchase the site and reconstruct a new lodge.
