Brownfield Redevelopment Toolbox

During the audience comment portion of the discussion about mixed use/design guidelines at last week’s Planning Board meeting, Bob Roemer recommended that the Board and anyone who is interested take a look at a document called the Brownfield Redevelopment Toolbox, published by the Mass DEP. The context was a short discussion about possible redevelopment scenarios for the 8-acre Smith property, which is a “brownfield” site.

Here it is (a 48-page pdf document): Brownfield Toolbox. Another good source of additional information, also from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is available on the web here. This one also speaks to community engagement and alternatives including public/private partnerships.
