Subject: [CPEO-BIF] First of a series on Great Lakes brownfields
Great Lakes cities recycle brownfields into economic hope

Great Lakes Echo
December 21, 2010

Abandoned urban lots are community eyesores that increasingly represent economic opportunity.

Neglected, ignored and often contaminated with toxic chemicals, these so-called brownfields carry a lot of social ills, said Robert Colangelo, executive director for the National Brownfields Association.

But finding a way to reuse them is more important than ever.

"Brownfield redevelopment is always important, especially in a downing economy," Colangelo said.

Over the next six days, Great Lakes Echo journalists will report on some of the region's most innovative and creative city recycling projects. They show how brownfields are anything but wasted space.
