Bethlehem Reimagined Inc. is preparing to embark on a major cleanup

BETHLEHEM — With a new $500,000 federal grant, Bethlehem Reimagined Inc. is preparing to embark on a major cleanup of the Sinclair lot, a key parcel in the center of the village that is being planned for redevelopment. The highly competitive Brownfields cleanup grant was awarded to BRI from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and was just one of 36 cleanup grants awarded nationwide and the only cleanup grant in New Hampshire, said Eric Raichle, a member of BRI. This winter, BRI will hold public input sessions to hear the ideas that community members have for the property, which is located at the intersection of Main Street/Route 302 and Route 142 and is across from Rek-Lis Brewery.
