Pocantico Roundtable for Consensus on Brownfields

Author: Ilene Fiszel Bieler

Master of Urban lanning Final Thesis Project

"In the past few years, the remediation and redevelopment of brownfields has attained heightened visibility. Brownfields, which are overwhelmingly found in urban areas, are narrowly defined as abandoned idled or underused industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination.

This paper will examine the argument for brownfield revitalization, which has been stimulated in part by Michael E. Porter's writings about inner-city  redevelopment. It will then look at the role of government in brownfield remediation, redevelopment and regulation. In so doing, it will analyze two different state redevelopment strategies, Pennsylvania and New York, and attempt to determine whether New York State is sacrificing job growth, economic development and environmental protection by not having enabling legislation."
