The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a brownfield as:
“a piece of property whose expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, contaminants, controlled substances, or petroleum or petroleum products.”
A grant provided by the EPA in 2011 provided funding for the City to help more than 20 properties identify perceived and/or real environmental complications by offering site assessments and clean-up planning activities, all at no cost to the property owner.
