In Michigan Brownfields are considered properties that are either contaminated, blighted, or functionally obsolete. Brownfield sites can be found in cities with long histories of heavy industry and large-scale manufacturing activity and also in small towns and rural areas in Michigan. Revitalization of brownfields is critically important to communities throughout Michigan.

Revised DEQ Study Area Map

This map attachment below is an area that has been identified by the Michigan Dept of Environmental Quality as eligible under a $306,000 grant:

1. Environmental Site Assessments to benefit economic development to confirm the presences of absence of hazardous substances that may be present on the site and, if so, outline remedial alternatives.

2. Baseline Environmental Assessments, that under Michigan Law, protects innocent owners and operators from liability from previously existing contamination they did not cause.   MAP


Genesee County Land Bank

Genessee County sites  The 
Genesee County Land Bank has one of the largest inventories of Brownfield properties in Mid-Michigan.

The Genesee County Board of Commissioners established the Genesee County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (GCBRA) in 2001 under the authority of the Michigan Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act (PA 381 of 1996, as amended). The authority provides a mechanism to support the cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields - properties that are, or perceived to be, environmentally contaminated, owned or under the control of a Land Bank Authority, or blighted and functionally obsolete and located in a Core Community within Genesee County.
