Summary of the EPA's guide to community involvement in brownfield redevelopment. What steps can the community take towards revitalization?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) recently developed a Guide to help communities with brownfields to more successfully address community revitalization and brownfields-related challenges. The guide outlines concrete actions communities can take to address these challenges.
Through the three case studies described in the Guide, it is shown that attracting public or private investment for the reuse of brownfield properties can bring economic and social benefits to communities, in addition to improving environmental conditions.
