  • (1888PressRelease) April 09, 2011 - She emphasized that the redevelopment of our nation's brownfields are critical to several priorities of the USEPA, particularly expanding the environmental conversation to local (and often disenfranchised) communities. She spoke of the formation of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, a coordinated effort between the EPA, the USDOT and HUD to integrate environmental protection, housing and transportation investment. She emphasized the need for the private sector to assist in training communities on how best to redevelop brownfield properties with a goal towards locally driven planning decisions.
