Brownfield: A former Industrial or commercial site where future use is affected by real or perceived environmental contamination.

Through Brownfields communities have been able to reinvest in themselves, returning properties in the core of their infrastructure to beneficial reuse.  Cleaning up and redeveloping these properties increases local tax bases, facilitates job growth, preserves historic structures, and improves public health, while turning environmental liabilities into economic drivers for the community.
