Cleaning up and reinvesting in Brownfield properties facilitates job growth, utilizes existing infrastructure, increases local tax bases, removes development pressures on undeveloped open land as well as both improving and protecting the environment. The Orlando Economic Enhancement District Program (OEED) is a State of Florida economic development tool encouraging redevelopment of properties by businesses and property owners. OEED is a brownfield designation and includes sites that have the perception of contamination or blight.
In 2012, the City of Orlando was selected to receive $400,000 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Brownfields Assessment Grants program to assist the City of Orlando’s Brownfields Program. In 2013, the City received a $200,000 Cleanup Grant to further assist the City with achieving its Brownfield redevelopment vision.
