Whitewright Area-Wide Brownfields Plan, Whitewright, TX

The Antero Group has been working with Whitewright, Texas to enhance its downtown and address several vacant brownfields sites adjacent to the historic core of the community. While crafting a Vision for the community, the Antero Group and the Texoma Council of Governments wrote and were awarded $200,000 USEPA Area-Wide Brownfields Grant on behalf of the community. This highly competitive grant”(only 20 are awarded nationally each year) allowed the city to develop a strategy for redevelopment of four key parcels, while also analyzing the community’s wants and needs. The results of this effort included several new businesses, and $60,000 in additional grant funding from the state of Texas.
