The Brownfields Partnership

The Brownfields Partnership, created in 1997, is bringing together local, state, regional and federal agencies with private sector, non-profit and community organizations to improve the quality of life for residents of Southeast Florida's historic urban core.

Because actual or perceived environmental contamination in urban infill sites - along with the risks and costs associated with addressing it - is a significant barrier to redevelopment in the Eastward Ho! corridor, the Partnership is targeting the remediation and sustainable reuse of contaminated and abandoned or underused sites as part of the larger Eastward Ho! effort. The Eastward Ho! initiative seeks to revitalize and improve the quality of life in Southeast Florida's historic, urban areas in an effort to lessen development pressure and urban sprawl in sensitive lands to the west which are needed in order to restore the Everglades ecosystem and ensure future regional water supplies.  The Partnership was designated a National Brownfields Showcase Community on March 17, 1998.
