Textile Mill Redevelopment Guide

Catawba Regional Council of Governments (COG) has been involved in the successful redevelopment of multiple textile/brownfields projects that have leveraged federal, state and local funds. These projects produced positive changes on blighted, textile/brownfield properties. Since 2000, Catawba Regional has managed 17 textile related projects for localities in the region that were funded through state and federal agencies and funding sources, including the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the EPA and the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control (DHEC).

Local officials in South Carolina can use the techniques and resources compiled in this easy-toread resource for addressing brownfields redevelopment options specific to textile mills.  Through the support of the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Catawba Regional received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding in December 2010 to prepare this Textile Mill Redevelopment Guide. The guide will provide a resource for the clean-up and redevelopment of these textile-related brownfields sites in the Catawba region and throughout the state to improve economic viability in low and moderate income areas.
