ENVIRONMENT: Cleaning up and rebuilding a city

By Dan Miner
Niagara Gazette (NY)
February 16, 2008

"Brownfield" can feel like a convoluted term - like environmentalist 
jargon. It doesn't sound like much in the grand context of a city trying 
to find its footing. Not with obvious crime and poverty issues. Not with 
empty storefronts, empty homes and poorly maintained roads.

But the fate of Niagara Falls is tied closely with how successfully it 
can clean and redevelop its brownfields.

Edward Flynn, a senior planner with Labella Associates hired by the 
city, told about 40 people at Niagara Falls City Hall on Wednesday that 
brownfields are not only areas which need environmental clean up but 
also areas which people think need cleaning up. Perception can make an 
area a brownfield, he said.
