Murphy Administration Releases New Tool For Brownfield Cleanup and Redevelopment to Improve Economic
February 14, 2022 | nj.gov
The Murphy Administration is making it easier to identify once contaminated and blighted properties that present unique opportunities for economic development and environmental improvement. In collaboration with the Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, the Department of Environmental Protection has enhanced its Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping application, creating a Brownfields Inventory mapping layer that makes valuable information about brownfields sites easily accessible, helping investors, developers, community leaders, Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs), and the public identify brownfields with redevelopment potential.
NJ SEED: When abandoned, idled, or underused contaminated industrial and commercial sites (Brownfields) are properly cleaned-up they can provide opportunities for appropriate economic growth in areas of the state where private sector investment would be welcome. A Brownfields Inventory will help attract investors, developers, and others.
