MCCOMB, Miss. (AP) - Architects, engineers and city officials are creating a vision to revive parts of McComb, some of which have been out of commercial use for decades.

Officials held a meeting last week on brownfields project. Brownfields are properties that have fallen out of use, and in some cases, contain environmental hazards that must be resolved, such as asbestos, old chemicals and other contamination.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1P11ofT) officials have put together a vision that includes a possible craft brewery, a grocery, a farmer’s market and other small retail and mixed-use spaces near the railroad pavilion.

Jay C. Estes with Allen Engineering and Science says city officials will have to immediately work with property owners, noting available incentives for property owners to rehab abandoned buildings and brownfields.
