Geoprofessional business association ASFE has added four brownfield-redevelopment publications to its online store, according to a Feb. 10 press release from the organization. Available free of charge, the four publications are:
- The Brownfields Tax Incentive, which includes a brownfields tax-incentive fact sheet, guidelines for using the tax incentives, and answers to frequently asked questions, plus case histories and information about other resources.
- Revitalizing America’s Mills: A Report on Brownfields Mill Projects, which features case histories that chronicle some of the challenges faced and innovative solutions found during the revitalization of more than 350 abandoned and potentially contaminated mill sites.
- Mine-Scarred Lands (MSL) Initiative Tool Kit, which is designed to help communities clean up and revitalize former mines. Models from the six MSL Initiative projects focus on the cleanup and redevelopment of hard-rock- and coal-mine-scarred lands. The document also provides links to other resources.
- From Landfill to Landmark: Save The Bay Center reviews Save The Bay’s seven-year Fields Point development project. It documents the interplay between permitting, financing, and cleanup requirements, Save The Bay’s decision-making, and project outcomes. The Save The Bay Center demonstrates how redevelopment of brownfield properties builds on prior public and private investment, takes advantage of existing infrastructure, and helps revitalize communities.
