Brownfield Redevelopment

The Eugene-Springfield area received a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency to inventory and assess potential brownfield sites. This grant positions the metro area to establish a brownfields program and begin to see cleanup and re-development of key properties. In Eugene, work is focused on the downtown, west Eugene and Highway 99 industrial areas. Vacant or underused properties can be redeveloped into residential, commercial, or industrial uses, helping to re-use land inside the existing UGB and reduce the amount of UGB expansions.
