  • Brownfields Program

    What is a Brownfield? "A brownfield is a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant." - EPA

    As you walk around Bloomfield, you can find abandoned commercial or industrial sites. Some of these sites have recognized or perceived environmental impacts that hinder them from being re-developed. They negatively affect property values, and offer no benefit to the economy or to the community in their current state.
