Portland Brownfield Assessment

In order to provide adequate land supply to capture economic development opportunities, effective public policy to encourage redevelopment of brownfields will be needed. To support those policy decisions, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, with a grant from Metro, has undertaken this Portland Brownfield Assessment to examine the financial and economic development characteristics of brownfield remediation and redevelopment, with a particular focus on industrial lands. Brownfield sites are traditionally characterized by real or potential environmental contamination concerns, but the driver for redevelopment of brownfields is their potential value when redeveloped.
