Brownfield is defined as real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. In Ohio, there are thousands of abandoned or under-utilized properties with environmental contamination. These abandoned properties may cause environmental degradation due to lack of maintenance. In Ohio, there are several types of fund programs aiming to redevelop these brownfield sties in order to make the properties in productive use. This paper examines the brownfield redevelopment projects that received Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund (CORF). Specifically, it examines the end-uses of these projects. I draw case study data from documents analysis and interviews with municipalities’ officials.
