Land Revitalization

Reusing Brownfield Sites

Brownfields can be redeveloped in many different ways: old industrial buildings can be turned into new real estate, a new building can occur on cleared sites, and community infrastructure and aesthetics can be improved by creating more greenspace.

The U.S. EPA's Land Revitalization Toolkit helps communities identify possibilities for reusing brownfield sites. Many guides are provided on this website to help a community get started on identifying site reuse opportunities.  Stages include reuse planning, pre-development, development, and reuse management and operations.
