Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Michigan brownfield laws
New brownfield laws will help small communities

Recent changes to Michigan brownfield laws may awaken sleeping giants in 
Essexville and other smaller communities.

Up until the changes became law in late December, only 100 so-called 
''core communities'' could take advantage of tools that allow developers 
to be reimbursed for cleaning up or demolishing old industrial 
properties - called brownfields.

Now, every community in Michigan can use tax incentives to redevelop 
such properties, including places like Essexville, which wasn't among 
the 100 communities covered under the old law.
