Keweenaw County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority

About Us

In 1990 the legislature adopted legislation to address the problems associated with abandoned, idled and under-used commercial or industrial sites.  Some sites are classified as “contaminated.”  As a general rule, once a site has been contaminated and cleanup orders are either not followed or not given, the sites typically draw little interest from investors because they fear being held liable for the cleanup even though they were not involved in deposits of hazardous materials or leaking underground storage tanks.

The County Brownfield Committee works with other agencies, private and municipal to find ways to clean up the properties, and ready them for sale.

Keweenaw County Brownfield Authority is always looking for interested members.  Keweenaw County residency is not a requirement.
