EPA regional administrator John H. Hankinson, Jr. to tour redevelopment project in Birmingham, Alabama on Monday, March 11.

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 8, 1996--John H. Hankinson, Jr., regional administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will tour the North Birmingham, Alabama Redevelopment Project on Monday, March 11, 1996, as part of a nationwide "Environment Day."

President Clinton and Administration officials will be making similar appearances around the country on Monday.

The 900-acre site has been designated an EPA "Brownfields" site. Brownfields is an effort by the Agency to clean up and redevelop abandoned and contaminated property.

EPA has awarded a $200,000 Brownfields grant to the city, which among other things, will be used to establish a clearinghouse to allow environmental planning to be carried out apart from the regulatory framework.

Also, Birmingham has been targeted as a pilot city for EPA's Common Sense Initiative for the iron and steel sector. This is a collaborative effort to review ways of doing things easier, cheaper, and faster, while ensuring environmental protection and compliance with existing regulations. -0-
