The Department of Environmental Protection and its partners this week launched www.PaSitesSearch.com, a new online database of brownfield sites now available in Pennsylvania for development, and invited property owners and local groups to make additions to the listings.
The website will be the primary tool to showcase Pennsylvania brownfield sites to the expected 6,000 attendees expected at the national Brownfields 2011 Conference in Philadelphia on April 3-5.
Property owners are encouraged to submit information on their own brownfield sites through www.pasitesearch.com. Team PA will be available for support and technical assistance.
When submitting information, it is important that all data points requested are included– including specifications, utility information, and high-quality photographs.
The state departments of Environmental Protection and Community and Economic Development have partnered with the Pennsylvania Economic Development Association and the Team Pennsylvania Foundation to produce the www.PaSitesSearch.com website.
For more information about how to make sure your properties are included in the inventory, visit Team Pennsylvania's website.
