In 2012, Washington County’s Brownfield Site Redevelopment Program, with the objective of transforming formerly contaminated and unused industrial sites into new and vibrant economic developments, includes a collaboration of five municipalities with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Economic Development Washington County. The Barton School Apartments project in West Bend is a recent beneficiary of this program. It consists of 22 historically-preserved apartments renovated from the former 1924 Barton Elementary School building, and 18 townhomes constructed on the former school playground.
