Brownfield Redevelopment

To encourage redevelopment and reuse of abandoned Brownfields (old industrial properties) in your community, develop a program that includes any of the following elements:
1) Inventory all of the Brownfields in your community.
2) Have each Brownfield site assessed to determine the likely cost of cleaning up or containing any residual on-site contaminants.
3) Offer financial incentives (or at least information of financial assistance available from other sources) for remediation and redevelopment of these sites, since the clean-up and/or containment of Brownfields is often very expensive.

  • We'd like to create more jobs or economic opportunities in our community
