Brownfields Program

Community Involvement and Outreach

 

Community opinion and involvement is vital to the success of Brownfields restoration. The EPA Brownfields grant must engage as many members of the community as possible to be successful.   

When Brownfields studies identify environmental issues, the solution is always a balance between cost and community benefit.  The method of environmental restoration affects the type and amount of cleanup needed, if any.  For example, properties restored to business use often require less cleanup than for private home construction. You can help the UG determine the needs of our community as part of these decisions.

In seeking environmental solutions in support of redevelopment, the grant can incorporate your ideas in seeking the proper balance between protecting human health and the environment and an overall redevelopment strategy to create jobs, generate tax revenues and attract new residents and businesses.
