    • Description:
      The Land Reuse & Redevelopment Toolkit provides Community Planners with the information, procedures, and resources needed to identify, cleanup, and redevelop Land Reuse Sites to positively impact a community’s overall health. Let’s start with the basics. Land Reuse Sites Land Reuse Sites are sites that are slated for redevelopment but may have chemical contamination. Land Reuse Sites include Brownfields, as well as other types of hazardous or potentially hazardous sites, such as landfills or Superfund sites. In essence, they are potentially contaminated sites that may be abandoned or underused industrial, commercial, or residential properties. A variety of Land Reuse Sites exist in the United States, including Brownfields.1 Brownfields are defined by the United States Congress through a 2002 amendment to CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act) as real property — the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. There are some exclusions to the definition of “brownfield site,” including facilities that are listed or may be placed on the National Priorities List, or are subject to corrective action under the Solid Waste Disposal Act. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that there are more than 450,000 Brownfield sites in the United States making them the most common type of Land Reuse Site.2 As foreclosures and manufacturing downturns increase, so may the number of Brownfields. There are other types of sites that qualify as Land Reuse Sites. Federal facilities include lands and improvements to lands, such as buildings, structures, and equipment owned by or leased to the federal government. Some of these sites may be contaminated. Federal facilities must comply with environmental regulations. Publicatoin date from document properties. Brownfields_Toolkit_Community_Planner-508.pdf
