EPA to recognize Victory Park as environmental success


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will participate in an Earth Day 2007 celebration at Victory Park and recognize the development for its environmental excellence.

WHAT: EPA Regional Administrator Richard E. Greene will recognize Victory Park as the largest EPA national model of brownfields environmental and economic success. Before it became the 75-acre business and recreation hub we know today, the land that is home to Victory Park was used as a city dump, electric plant, and railroad yard, among other uses. The site was redeveloped as part of the Dallas Brownfields Program, which began with a $200,000 grant from EPA. As part of the celebration, a bronze plaque will be unveiled to commemorate the success of the project.

EPA will be joined by the projectís partners, which include the City of Dallas, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Hillwood Development Corp., LLC, and Hicks Holdings, LLC. A group of 150 Dallas elementary school children will also participate in a variety of environmental education activities during the Earth Day 2007 event.
