Brownfield Inventory
A brownfields inventory is a list of properties that meet the definition a brownfield – a property that may be contaminated by hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants. The inventory should include data such as ownership information, street address, and lot size.  This inventory helps a community plan for redevelopment opportunities and apply for grant funding. It’s important to keep a brownfields inventory updated regularly, which is why we need your assistance.  We are creating a brownfield inventory to create a map and list of priorities for future redevelopment grants. If you’re aware of any potential brownfields, let us know!

  • closed schools
