Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council Announces the
Closing of a $300,000 Brownfields Cleanup Loan to the
Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency
The Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) is pleased to announce it has closed a $300,000 Brownfields cleanup loan to the Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA). FPRA will use the loan proceeds to conduct environmental cleanup activities at the former H.D. King power plant site located at 322 North 2nd Street, Fort Pierce, Florida.
The City is pleased to be entering into the third and final phase of site remediation of the former HD King Power Plant. Without the financial and technical assistance of the TCRPC, the City could not have brought this project to fruition. The knowledge and staff from the TCRPC are a tremendous asset to the City and the Revolving Loan Fund is an integral part.

The TCRPC Brownfields Program has originated $1.7 million in cleanup loans for Ft. Pierce. The program is designed to serve as a catalyst for cleanup of petroleum and hazardous material contaminated sites in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties. The program supports economic development and job creation by helping local governments conduct environmental site assessment and/or cleanup activities at high priority brownfield redevelopment sites like this one just north of downtown Fort Pierce.
