Brownfield assessment program

Brownfields are abandoned or underused properties where development may be problematic due to the presence or potential presence of environmental contamination. For local governments, brownfields are also real estate resources that can be investigated, cleaned up and redeveloped. Brownfield redevelopment can allow communities to use local land again - producing jobs, increasing the tax base, preserving neighborhoods, and reducing urban sprawl.

Under funding from the U.S. EPA, the Bay-Lake RPC will conduct brownfield site assessments throughout the region’s eight counties and the Oneida Nation. The BLRPC will work with a regional group of stakeholders to create a brownfields redevelopment strategy, select and prioritize sites for Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments, and provide input into the development of final reuse plans.
