The U.S. Conference of Mayors defines the term 'brownfield' as an abandoned or underutilized property where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by either real or perceived environmental contamination. This description applies to a wide variety of sites including, but not limited to, industrial properties, old gas stations, vacant warehouses, former dry cleaning establishments, or even abandoned residential buildings which potentially could contain lead paint or asbestos. Brownfields are located in almost every community in the United States. This is the third annual report published by The U.S. Conference of Mayors describing the status of brownfields in the United States. Data included in this report is a compilation of information provided from 231 cities who responded to a Conference of Mayors' questionnaire. The participating cities were from 42 different states as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. The cities ranged in size from Hope, NJ with a population of 1,468 to New York City with a population of 7,380,906 proving once again that the problem of brownfields affect cities of every size.
