How does the Northside Revitalization project uphold our community’s focus on the environment?

Brownfields projects can be viewed as one of the ultimate recycling projects. Abandoned, unused, and/or underutilized properties are put to better uses; while environmental cleanup (if necessary) provides significant environmental benefits. These include reduced impacts to public health and water quality and air quality improvements. This also minimizes the use of undeveloped properties on the City’s perimeter and mitigates urban sprawl. The Northside Revitalization Project fits perfectly in the community’s focus on the environment by identifying whether environmental impact exists or not on eligible sites that enter into the project voluntarily.
