New brownfield map pinpoints opportunities
Statewide talks focus on redevelopment of once-tainted sites

Is that vacant site across the street an old gas station or dry cleaner, by any chance?

Now there's a way to find out.

The city's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has just updated its inventory maps of every brownfield site in the city - all 910 acres of those that had been used for commercial or industrial use dating back to the 1930s.

Prior to this, there was no such comprehensive guide for the public to access, says Tyler Bump, economic planner for the planning bureau.

Anyone can now pin-point these sites, putting an up-close-and- personal face on something that exists in every neighborhood and business district in the city.

In all, the city's inventory of brownfields is 910 acres. And city officials have an ambitious goal of redeveloping 60 percent of that land in the next 25 years.
