EAST RUTHERFORD - In an effort to rejuvenate a sagging industrial area, the borough council has tentatively endorsed implementing a "brownfields" redevelopment plan covering at least 28 acres. The region would include part of Paterson Avenue and points south and west.

The program exclusively covers polluted industrial/commercial sites.
