ECRG News for the City of Bell Gardens
The City of Bell Gardens has been awarded an Equitable Community Revitalization Grant ("ECRG") from the Department of Toxic Substances Control ("DTSC"). ECRG monies will be used for investigation and clean-up of contaminated property located at 5636 Shull Street. DTSC and the Regional Board are collaborating on this site as a funding agency and oversight agency, respectively.


Bell Gardens is in desperate need of an increase in housing growth, with only a 2% increase since 2000. Site remediation will provide access to 4.33 acres of land to construct eighty affordable multi-family rental units and eighteen affordable town homes for purchase. The project also has the capability of supporting the community through job creation and the development of equitable contracting systems.

The site has been vacant for approximately 20 years. Clean-up will remove hazardous materials in both soil and groundwater beneath the site. 

The City of Bell Gardens, DTSC, Contractors, and developers want to keep the public updated on this important project. Please use this website to stay informed on upcoming informational meetings and other public events.
