Brownfield Redevelopment Program

Overview


The City's Brownfields program is not just about redevelopment. It is also about incentives, on the federal, state and local levels to facilitate that development. For the community, brownfield redevelopment projects create new jobs and tax revenues, improve the environment, revitalize neighborhoods, increase property values, eliminate environmental inequities, and enhance the overall quality of life. Within the City of Ormond Beach there are two designated Brownfields also known as the Granada Economic Opportunity Brownfield Zone and the US 1 North Brownfield.

What is a Brownfield?

Brownfields are abandoned, idled industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Brownfields not addressed by environmental remediation are an inefficient economic use of urban land; contribute to community decline, slum and blight; present a potential hazard to public health; and unaddressed, brownfields result in premature expansion and sprawl of urban development. Environmental remediation and re-use of brownfields is in the economic, environmental and community interests of the County.

City Brownfield Policy

The City of Ormond Beach City Commission has adopted Resolution 2012-02 and Resolution 2012-21 establishing two separate Brownfield Redevelopment Areas. 

Brownfields not addressed by environmental remediation are an inefficient economic use of urban land; contribute to community decline, slum and blight; present a potential hazard to public health; and, if unaddressed, brownfields result in premature expansion and sprawl of urban development. Environmental remediation and reuse of brownfields are in the economic, environmental and community interests of the City and shall be a priority in implementation of the City's Comprehensive Plan. 

Therefore, it is the policy of the City Commission of the City of Ormond Beach to provide assistance and incentives to public and private landowners and businesses to facilitate the environmental cleanup and reuse of contaminated urban property.
