Inventory of Potential Brownfield Sites

Please note that RPC does not maintain a list of potential Brownfield sites in our region. Instead,
we encourage you to work with a commercial real estate agent to find a property that meets the needs of your
proposed redevelopment project and then contact RPC if the site is in need of environmental assessment.

assessment assistance, please complete the
