Brownfields are generally abandoned or vacant land that is — or is perceived to be — polluted or contaminated. Often times these properties are considered “blight,” preventing community investment, reducing property values and negatively impacting quality of life. Brownfields are often concentrated in economically distressed communities in post-industrial cities.
