Soliciting Brownfields and Community Revitalization Success Stories

The Urban Habitat Program's Community Revitalization and Land
Restoration Project supports, through research, leadership training, and
policy advocacy, community-driven efforts to clean up and reuse vacant,
blighted, and contaminated land as a means of addressing the health,
environmental, and economic needs of low-income communities of color in
the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Using brownfields or land recycling as one of many community-building
strategies, UHP works to build the capacity and leadership of
community-based organizationsto effectively direct urban revitalization
efforts across the region.

In the next issue of the Urban Habitat Program's celebrated Race,
Poverty, and the Environment Journal (RPE), UHP will be reframing
brownfields redevelopment from a social justive perspective using the
experiences and voices of community leaders and institutions working on
environmental justice and community development throughout the nation.

We are hoping to include brief profiles of some of the successful
initiatives and innovative strategies that have been developed by
community-based groups and alliances and/or collaborative
multi-stakeholder partneships that have taken leadership in using
brownfields as a tool for achieving community revitalization.

The Urban Habitat Program would love to document and disseminate your
inspirational stories of brownfields-related projects that are rallying
communities around key issues such as (but not limited to:)
open space; food security; public health and safety; transportation
access; job training & employment; leadership development; and local
economic development.

In addition to being showcased in our upcoming Race, Poverty, and the
Environment Journal, all contributors will receive a complimentary copy
of UHP's newly released Community Guide to Brownfields Redevelopment. 

If you are involved in or know of any such projects, please share them
with us by contacting Catalina Garzón, Community Revitalization Project
Associate, at garzcat@igc.org, or at (415) 561-3328.
