Join ANJEC (The Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions) and the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR)
Brownfields – or vacant and/or underutilized properties where there is known or suspected environmental contamination – are enormously prevalent in New Jersey. There are likely multiple properties in each of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities. These sites sit idle because they are a challenge to sell and their redevelopment may be complicated by the real or perceived presence of environmental contamination. In spite of these challenges, brownfields remediation and redevelopment is a priority for many municipalities to stimulate economic development, mitigate threats to public health, and further communities’ environmental justice goals.
In this one hour-long webinar presenters will:
Walk you through the nine steps of brownfield redevelopment outlined in ANJEC and CCLR’s recently updated “Remediating & Redeveloping Brownfields in New Jersey: A Guide for Municipalities and Community Organizations”
devote special attention to the purpose and methods of conducting a brownfields inventory;
spotlight land reuse success stories from around New Jersey;
and outline the resources available as you and your community embark down the road to redevelopment.

About the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR)
The Center for Creative Land Recycling is the leading national nonprofit dedicated to transforming communities through land recycling. This means converting abandoned or vacant commercial and industrial properties to assets that benefit the community, create jobs, and generate new tax revenues. We help transformations happen by educating and convening communities, government agencies, and the private sector to create optimal conditions for reinvestment. Over the past 20 years, we have assisted in bringing millions of dollars in grants to places across the U.S. and trained nearly 10,000 community-oriented specialists through our professional workshops. For more information contact Jean Hamerman at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.cclr.org.
