DEFERIET — During a special meeting June 21, the village Board of Trustees decided to move forward, with the town of Wilna as the lead agency, to designate the former St. Regis paper mill property as a Brownfield Opportunity Area.

The action is a multi-step process starting with applying to the Department of State for a Brownfield Opportunity Area nomination study, according to Sarah Bullock, town of Wilna community development director.
