|Brownfields - Legal and Regulatory Issues|
Brownfields redevelopment can be encouraged or thwarted, depending on the legal and regulatory framework. In white papers and presentations, the Institute has sought to highlight some of the ways brownfields redevelopment can be facilitated by regulatory mechanisms.
Northeast and Midwest member states, because of the prevalence of abandoned manufacturing plants and the need to re-position those vacated sites to accommodate productive new uses, generally have a strong interest in brownfields regulatory mechanisms that encourage new investment in brownfields sites.
