An abandoned, idled or underused industrial and commercial property, the reuse or redevelopment of which is complicated by real or perceived contamination. Brownfield sites have received US EPA funding for redevelopment.
cities from coast to coast and three municipalities in Puerto Rico are already using Brownfield Listings to market their reusable real estate more aggressively and connect to real estate specialists and brownfield buyers nationally.
So it would appear to be signifi-cant that the Durham University researchers found that local communities with large amounts of brownfield land had poorer health outcomes, including limiting long term illness.
The new grant program will make over $9 million in City funds available over the next several years to fund environmental investigations, environmental cleanups, and brownfield planning by community based organizations throughout the City.
