Helping Transform Vermont's Underdeveloped Properties to Redeveloped Properties
Brownfield: A property on which expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by the release or threatened release of a hazardous material.
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, Department of Environmental Conservation, encourages brownfield reuse projects as a means of accomplishing positive environmental and human health impacts while advancing sound land-use practices. Reutilization of historically productive properties supports sustainable development trends and promotes community and economic growth. The Brownfields Reuse Initiative comprises several programs designed to provide brownfield developers with tools to help deliver projects in a safe, timely and cost effective manner, focusing on three areas: limitation of environmental liability; technical assistance; and financial assistance. The programs are administered either directly by the Department or, in some instances, in collaboration with the Department’s Initiative partners the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development and Vermont’s eleven Regional Planning Commissions.
