Brownfield Redevelopment Authority

Brownfields are defined as “real property for which the expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.”

The goal of the Brownfield Program, and the Sault Ste. Marie Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, is to repurpose these sites, thus increasing the site’s taxable value, utilizing public infrastructure that may already be in place, and preserving green space.
