City of New Westminster up for a ‘Brownie’ Award

The City of New Westminster is a finalist for a national award for its Westminster Pier Park project. For remediation of the toxic brownfield it is being built on, the $25.1-million project is up for a 2011 Canadian Urban Institute “Brownie” Award in the category Sustainable Remediation Technologies and Technological Innovation. A large part of the funding for the park, $16.6 million, came from the federal government’s Build Canada Fund.
