Economic Opportunities Working with Blighted Properties
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) estimates that there are more than 450,000 brownfields in the US. Cleaning up and redeveloping these properties creates many societal and environmental benefits: (1) increasing local tax bases, (2) adding jobs, (3) increasing nearby property values, (4) reducing pressures to develop open land, and (5) improving and protecting the environment.
BBJ Group routinely works with local, state, and federal regulatory bodies in the course of completing a variety of brownfield-related due diligence, site restoration, and cleanup projects. In addition to handling the remediation, BBJ Group also assists client with grant applications to secure the necessary funding to kick off a project, and can help lead public outreach during all stages of the project.
