I'm looking for any information available concerning the economic impact
of brownfields.

effort to assess the relative threats posed by different types of
environmental stressors.  I'm on the Socio-Economic Technical Work Group
which works specifically on economic impacts.  We have been directed to

and monetary costs incurred.

Concerning brownfields, we are trying to answer these specific

1) How many jobs are lost in New Jersey because of brownfields?
2) What is the total amount of property value loss caused by
3) How much tax revenue in New Jersey is lost because of brownfields?

be impossible to find valid numbers to answer the above questions.
Still, I would greatly appreciate hearing from  anyone who may have
information that might help us to address these questions.
