Brooklyn project: An example of revitalization and collaboration by Kelly Grinsteinner Hibbing Daily Tribune/Mesabi Daily News (MN) October 31, 2014HIBBING - A Neighborhood of Habitat for Humanity homes in the Brooklyn area is a good example of reuse and revitalization of formerly contaminated land, according to the nonprofit organization Minnesota Brownfields.
...NSLCHFH has transformed a contaminated, vacant city block - which was once the site of the Brooklyn School - into $960,000 worth of affordable, single-family homes. The development provides shelters for 28 to 30 residents.
When the former Brooklyn school was destroyed by fire in 1973, its charred remains were buried on site, resulting in the contamination of soils and debris with lead, other metals and asbestos. The site remained vacant until it was donated to the nonprofit in 2008.
