RPC's Brownfield Brownfield Redevelopment Program

"Brownfields" are abandoned, idled, or underused industrial or commercial properties with real or perceived environmental contamination. Addressing potential environmental issues, especially financial and regulatory hurdles, is often intimidating, creating a barrier to the redevelopment or expanded use of these sites. Supported by grants from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Regional Planning Commission's (RPC's) Brownfield Redevelopment Program provides technical guidance and environmental assessments to facilitate the redevelopment of Brownfield sites in the city of New Orleans and the surrounding parishes of Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa in southeast Louisiana, converting these properties from community liabilities into community assets.
