Potential future property uses must be considered early on as part of site cleanup negotiation and planning. Chances to integrate cleanup actions with final site components can represent significant environmental opportunities and cost savings.
Final site redevelopment and use goals can vary significantly. Should infrastructure be installed or renovated? Should the site be returned to its natural state? Or would another avenue of redevelopment be more advantageous for owners, investors the surrounding community, and the environment? Such questions can best be answered by carefully examining the various advantages and drawbacks offered by each option, and by assessing the inherent challenges involved.
