Blighted Brookfield site to become housing and retail if voters approve funding

Residents are set to vote Thursday on funding approval for the abatement, demolition and remediation of a blighted property where housing and retail space is proposed. A potable well sampling conducted at the site that year identified the dry cleaning solvent perchloroethylene in soil and groundwater, and the roughly 4,700-square-foot building on property — which was condemned in 2011 — has accrued over $80,000 in blight violation fines. With the current owner and other developers unwilling to do so, the town has teamed up with Unicorn Contracting Corporation — the same company that developed the Brookfield Village apartments at the corner of Federal and Station roads — to clean up and redevelop 20 Station Road.
