Abstract

Brownfield redevelopment is increasingly being pursued as a means to sustainably use land. Beyond that, brownfield redevelopment policies can have effects on the surrounding communities. The current study examines these positive effects in a few different sectors, namely environmental, social and economic. A variety of data and parameters were assessed within these categories including but not limited to, employment data, health costs in the surrounding community and comparisons to greenfield development. The research concludes that brownfield redevelopment has positive effects on the neighboring communities where the brownfield remediation is occurring. Discussion focuses on which factors to consider most seriously in the assessment of which areas to provide redevelopment to first.
