Brownfields Opportunity Area
The City of Ogdensburg is ready for redevelopment and has established key planning initiatives that serve as a framework to guide actions. These initiatives include the Downtown Waterfront Core Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) and the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP). The vision, goals and policies of these plans apply to the Diamond Site and other redevelopment sites within the city.
The City of Ogdensburg is proactively working to reposition additional city-owned parcels for redevelopment. A number of sites are currently undergoing remediation with funding assistance from New York State. The city continues to invest in infrastructure in support of future development.
