  • The City of Chicago established the Chicago Brownfields Initiative in 1993 to acquire, assemble, and rehabilitate properties, returning them back to productive use. The Initiative links environmental restoration with economic development by cleaning up and redeveloping brownfields and by improving policies to promote private redevelopment of brownfields. The purpose of the Chicago Brownfields Initiative is to create jobs and generate tax revenues through industrial redevelopment, thereby improving Chicago‚Äôs environmental and economic health.
