Have a blighted property? Got properties with a questionable environmental history? Chances are you have brownfields. Brownfields are properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to contamination or the perception of contamination. They include a variety of sites, including abandoned schools and hospitals, former factories, mine-scarred lands, gas stations and dry cleaning sites.
There are resources out there to assist communities, nonprofits and quasi-governmental agencies in assessing and remediating their problem properties, allowing communities to get those properties back into productive reuse.
