Brownfields Redevelopment Resources

Brownfields are abandoned, idle or underused industrial or commercial facilities or sites where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. 

If you are interested in redeveloping a suspected brownfield site in the City of Racine, contact the Department of City Development

The City also administers a Brownfield Cleanup Revolving Loan Fund (BC-RLF) funded by US EPA to provide low interest, attractive term loans for cleanup projects of impacted sites in the City. Read more about this program and eligibility here.
