Brownfield sites are abandoned, idled, or underused industrial and commercial properties where expansion or (re)development is complicated by actual or perceived environmental contamination. (Re)development is risky due to unexpected issues with contamination with infill or previously utilized sites. Providing information about these potential (re)development sites minimizes risk for developers, increasing the likelihood of investment.
