Policies set by federal and state governments can have important impacts on local land use. They affect the cleanup and revitalization of unused or under-used industrial and commercial sites with known or suspected contamination (brownfields), as well as the pace of development of outlying farmland and forests (greenfields). Cleanup and liability policies affecting brownfields are being examined at the federal and state levels as well as by local governments and private groups. Despite the attention brownfields are receiving, many hard questions remain - for example: To what extent should prevailing cleanup standards be modified for brownfields; With less than maximal cleanups, can institutional controls assure future health and safety by guaranteeing that the site will not be used inappropriately; How should liability be allocated between current and prospective site owners; and How can limitations on financing and insurance for prospective site owners be overcome.
