I was wondering if any of you have been involved with community residents
or organizations participating in the risk analysis of brownfield sites.
Basically, the community education and decision of determining "how clean
is clean" or what is clean enough for the health and safety of end users
and residents.  I'm particularly interested in the siting of public use
facilities such as Schools!. Yes, quite a controversial and exciting topic
in LA these days.  I guess the similar type of use would be parks,
recreation areas and housing.

I've been asked to do some community workshops on this education,
participation, and decision-making aspect of the public health risk
issue.  I have been searching for literature and risk and decision
analysis models. I know there are some sophisticated computer software
engineers use, but was interested in something more cost effective and
user-friendly (although I'm not assuming that the software are not, I just
haven't seen them firsthand).

I'd appreciate anyone pointing out some academic as well as more practical
resources.  Thank you in advance.
