Description This guide provides critical information for local government agencies and nongovernmental organizations interested in building community capacity to promote informed decision-making and actions to clean up and redevelop these brownfield sites. Transitioning these properties from liabilities to community assets is a complex undertaking requiring well-thought-out strategies that recognize risk, cost, and opportunity. Each brownfield is unique, but all share common considerations. This guide explores those considerations and offers a path forward
for organizations and individuals that are pursuing this community and economic development goal.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
