Project Title & Description
Northern Liberties Neighbors Association Brownfield Project
An inventory of all the Brownfield sites in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of the City of Philadelphia will be done, and a data base of all these sites will be created. Brownfield sites are old and/or abandoned industrial sites that are being redeveloped and/or renovated for a new industrial or residential use. Community meetings will be held to discuss the redevelopment of Brownfields sites in the neighborhood. These meetings will help to involve the community in the revitalization process and will also educate community members about the possible health impacts resulting from exposure to site contaminants. A best practices resource guide will also be created to empower other similar communities with a large number of Brownfield sites undergoing redevelopment.
