Pennsylvania’s Land Recycling Program

Challenge: Pennsylvania DEP needed to take a fresh approach to getting Brownfield sites put into productive uses. Their “Brownfields Directory” was just not attracting any keen interest from the commercial real estate community, so ICF Consulting was requested to come and re-invent a web-based approach to listing and finding land for recycling.

Solution: Website to match potential purchasers to listing companies, using simple search criteria based on property and building size, lease or sale price, and county. This web-site is being enhanced to add spatially-relevant info. for prospective purchasers, such as access & zoning.

This web-site with its upbeat and interactive style helps reinforce the message that the State of Pennsylvania is always open for business.
