Brownfield Land Recycling Program
Program Overview

The City of Flagstaff's Brownfield Land Recycling Program encourages the reuse of previously developed land and buildings. Land recycling helps create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, potentially increase property value, and reduce potential human health risks. It also decreases the development pressure on open land and reduces urban sprawl by providing development opportunities within the City. The City of Flagstaff promotes the redevelopment of Brownfields by facilitating private party transactions, and through the acquisition, cleanup, and resale of environmentally challenged real estate. There are also federal tax incentives available for businesses to redevelop Brownfield sites. 

More incentives are currently being developed in Flagstaff. Please call us at (928) 213-2969 if you think you own land that might qualify as a Brownfield, you are interested in purchasing Brownfield property, or you have more questions about development incentives.

Brownfield Projects 

Rural communities in northern Arizona face long-term challenges caused when Historic Route 66 was replaced by the interstate system as the primary east-west transportation corridor across Arizona. To counter these challenges, the City of Flagstaff submitted for and received a $700,000 Brownfields Coalition grant application to address sites in northern Arizona located along the Historic Route 66 that are potentially impacted by petroleum products and hazardous substances. The Coalition has identified candidate sites in our targeted area, and anticipate conducting 70 Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) and 18 Phase II ESAs using the Brownfields Coalition grant funds. As the Lead Member with extensive experience managing EPA Brownfields Assessment grants, the City of Flagstaff has invited the Cities of Winslow and Holbrook and Navajo and Coconino Counties to participate in the coalition. This Coalition provides partners the opportunity to complete important assessment projects that they would otherwise be unable to accomplish due to limited resources.
