The Broward County Brownfield Redevelopment Program
A "Brownfield site" is defined as "real property, the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of which may be complicated by actual or perceived environmental contamination." Broward County Commissioners adopted a Brownfield program in 1998, one year after the Florida Legislature created the Brownfield Redevelopment Act. There are 14 Brownfield-designated areas in Broward County. Properties located in a designated Brownfield area may be eligible for certain benefits under this program, such as job bonus refunds and state loan guarantees.
