ASFE Offers Free Brownfields Publications
February 21, 2011

ASFE/The Geoprofessional Business Association has added four brownfield-redevelopment publications to its on-line store. Available free of charge, the four publications are:

The Brownfields Tax Incentive comprises a brownfields tax-incentive fact sheet, guidelines for using the tax incentives, and answers to frequently asked questions, along with case histories and information about other resources.
Revitalizing America’s Mills: A Report on Brownfields Mill Projects relates case histories that chronicle some of the challenges faced and innovative solutions found during the revitalization of more than 350 abandoned and potentially contaminated mill sites.
Mine-Scarred Lands (MSL) Initiative Tool Kit is designed to help communities clean up and revitalize former mines by sharing models from the six MSL Initiative projects focused on the clean-up and redevelopment of hard-rock- and coal-mine-scarred lands. The document also provides links to a wide range of resources.
From Landfill to Landmark: Save The Bay Center reviews Save The Bay’s seven-year Fields Point development project, documenting the interplay between permitting, financing, and clean-up requirements, Save The Bay’s decision-making, and the project outcomes. The Save The Bay Center demonstrates how redevelopment of brownfield properties builds on prior public and private investment, takes advantage of existing infrastructure, and helps revitalize communities.

All four publications are available free at
