This presentation provides the participants with an introduction to the brownfield concept and process for having a site deemed a brownfield. It discusses the public grants that help pay the cost of cleaning up contaminated sites often known as brownfields. Brownfield properties often are close to a high-quality workforce, good transportation, and transit. Redevelopment of such sites will likely increase the local tax base, add jobs or affordable housing units, and leverage private investment while avoiding costly new public infrastructure.
