Planning – Brownfield Planning and Redevelopment

Brownfield Planning and RedevelopmentBrownfield Planning and Redevelopment

Brownfield planning and redevelopment is a collaborative process of examining site-specific environmental hazards, land use history, potential remediation methodologies, and overall community needs and goals for the surrounding area. They are considered a source of blight by  communities and neighborhoods in which they are located. Redevelopment of such sites is critical to economic revitalization, sustainable growth, and community health initiatives.

A community’s brownfield redevelopment plan should identify and analyze demographic characteristics of the surrounding area, market feasibility of redevelopment scenarios, and environmental restrictions. Typically, this is a grassroots process that involves residents and stakeholders directly affected by the contaminated site, resulting in a redevelopment scenario that provides the highest and best use. Brownfield redevelopment planning involves providing a strategy for the creation of new jobs, remediation of contaminated sites, and sustainable development.
