How Brownfields Started
Market for old industrial sites began to decline.
Growing concerns over superfund liability.
Instead of reusing existing infrastructure, businesses moved out to pristine “urban sprawl” locations.
US Conference of Mayors initiated an effort in 1993.
EPA announces the first round of Brownfields grants in late 1993.
Why do we have Brownfields
We as the Shoshone Bannock Tribes have the obligation to:
Protect Human Health and the Environment
Revitalize Distressed Areas
