Editorial: Here a brownfield, there a brownfield; Fort Pierce has one everywhere?
City commissioners should reduce area containing potentially hazardous sites

By TCPalm Staff

Fort Pierce commissioners may designate 3,900 acres - the city's entire enterprise zone - as a brownfield area, meaning environmental hazards exist and need to be cleaned up.

Supporters say the designation will allow state funding to assist with cleanup, redevelopment and jobs creation.

Opponents, including Commissioner Reggie Sessions, say the designation will create a negative impression of the area as contaminated and might stifle economic investment and development.
