Restore land and build sustainable community assets. Maximize community opportunities
for economic redevelopment and vibrancy. Promote ecological restoration. Ensure
protection of human health and the environment. Revitalize communities.
EPA'S LAND REVITALIZATION
PROGRAM
EPA's Land Revitalization Team works in partnership with other
federal agencies, state and local governments, and the private
sector to support communities in their efforts to promote the
reuse of formerly contaminated properties. Removing barriers
to the reuse of formerly contaminated lands facilitates their
redevelopment and enhances their economic viability. This often
leads to significant environmental and economic benefits that
transform communities into more sustainable and livable places.
We develop, test, and share new approaches for sustainable
redevelopment that promote valuable reuse alternatives for
formerly contaminated properties. The Land Revitalization Team
can unlock the potential value of underused properties through
creativity and close collaboration with public and private
partners. Successful land revitalization strategies can stabilize a
distressed community, spur economic development, stimulate
job growth, and produce healthy, livable communities.
The Land Revitalization Program's small investments of targeted
technical assistance to promising community projects often
result in the development of replicable models and useful
tools that can help communities implement sustainable
redevelopment strategies that enhance economic development
and quality of life.
OUR APPROACH
Create a New Norm
The sustainable remediation and revitalization of contaminated lands
must become the norm throughout EPA's cleanup programs. The
implementation of sustainable cleanup and development techniques
must be incorporated into standard practices, guidance, codes,
ordinances, and laws at all levels of government. We will encourage
and facilitate the reuse of formerly contaminated sites as a way to
promote economic development and job creation in communities
throughout the country.
Develop arid Enhance Federal Partnerships
We will develop effective working relationships with our federal
partners to leverage our expertise and available resources to
promote community revitalization. Working in partnership with
other federal agencies is an efficient and effective way to craft
solutions and share information and resources that benefit our
communities.
Identify and Remove Barriers
We are dedicated to identifying and addressing the legal, financial,
and information barriers that may discourage communities from
making progress toward the cleanup and reuse of contaminated
properties.
Work Closely with Public- and Private-Sector
Stakeholders
We will foster strong partnerships with local stakeholders to address
environmental issues and promote meaningful involvement in
area-wide planning efforts, job creation, and other strategies that
will maximize the efficiency of site cleanup efforts while helping
to reuse contaminated lands and revitalize communities.
Assist Communities in Efforts to Promote the Reuse of
All Contaminated Lands
We will provide technical assistance to communities to promote the
sustainable reuse of contaminated lands. We will support community
projects that offer opportunities to test new technologies and
methods for sustainable reuse and redevelopment, identify
successful approaches, and share lessons learned.
Share and Track Success Stories
We will share success stories and lessons learned through
targeted outreach and educational efforts.
Develop and Share Land Revitalization Tools and
Replicable Models
We will use our experiences and lessons learned to develop
and share useful tools, guides, and replicable models that
communities across the country can use to address their land
revitalization challenges.
