The NJDEP has designated twenty-six properties in the Borough of Palmyra as a Brownfield Development Area (BDA). In the BDA process NJDEP will work with selected communities impacted by multiple brownfields to design and implement remediation and reuse plans, so that remediation and reuse can occur in a coordinated fashion.
The Route 73 South Redevelopment Area BDA consists of approximately 190 acres and represents more than 15% of Palmyra’s total land area. It is located at the base of the of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, a gateway into New Jersey from Philadelphia, and is adjacent to the 350-acre Palmyra Cove Nature Park (along the Delaware River). The BDA includes 26 brownfield properties. Former and current uses of the properties include deposition of dredge spoils, a private landfill, a private airport, a sand and gravel mining operation, a munitions test area for the Philadelphia-based Frankford arsenal, gasoline service stations, used car dealerships, car repair shops and five residential units.
Planned Use: Mixed-use, commercial/retail and recreational with a planned greenway along Route 73 corridor as a gateway into the Borough of Palmyra and New Jersey and a greenbelt buffer along the boundary with the Palmyra Cove Nature Park and the Pennsauken Creek.
