Description This guide provides critical information for local government agencies and nongovernmental organizations interested in building community capacity to promote informed decision-making and actions to clean up and redevelop these brownfield sites. Transitioning these properties from liabilities to community assets is a complex undertaking requiring well-thought-out strategies that recognize risk, cost, and opportunity. Each brownfield is unique, but all share common considerations. This guide explores those considerations and offers a path forward
for organizations and individuals that are pursuing this community and economic development goal.
