What Is a Brownfield?
A brownfield is a site where a plot of land was previously used for commercial or industrial uses and the land may have been contaminated by pollution or waste, but can be used for business or retail developers once it has been cleaned up. (https://www.epa.gov/brownfields)
What are the potential benefits to redeveloping brownfields?
The redevelopment of brownfields can provide many benefits to a community, including an increased tax base, the creation of new jobs, the utilization of existing infrastructure, and the removal of blight. The removal of contaminants in the area also helps to protect human health and the environment.
