Brownfield Task Force

Members- Meetings - Events

Successful brownfields reuse and redevelopment depends on early consideration of the potential future uses for each site. Local community priorities, market conditions, infrastructure availability, environmental contamination, public health issues, and local ordinances all shape brownfield site reuse opportunities. The purpose of the Brownfield Task Force is to develop inventories of brownfield sites within Fulton County, to use these components to prioritize the inventory, and to participate in community involvement activities, incorporating community input into developing a range of potential site reuse plans for the brownfields.

CRG’s EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant
Public Meetings:

July 7, 2022

Assessing and remediating a brownfield site leads to new development opportunities, which enhances neighborhood property values and increases the municipal tax base.

Redeveloped properties may also create more walkable communities, helping residents who might not have access to vehicles have safer access to schools, hospitals, and grocery stores. An additional benefit is the ability for a municipality to generate funds through an increase in local taxes. This growth and renewal can create jobs. Two recent studies indicated cleaning up brownfield sites can lead to a 5-15 percent increase in value of properties located 1.29 miles from a site.
