For nearly a hundred years, the downtown Sacramento Railyard was a vibrant, prosperous place. At its height, the yard employed 10,000 workers—working three shifts around the clock—providing mechanical support for the entire western rail system. But by the 1970s the site had become a forgotten, neglected eyesore in the heart of this Capitol city. Now the old buildings are about to come back to life again. Watch our video about the exciting revitalization of this 240-acre site brownfield redevelopment project.

Rural areas, declining small towns, and isolated neighborhoods within cities can all be challenging places to launch a redevelopment project. Due to stagnating economic conditions, the risk of investing in a redevelopment project can be very high. And yet, these neighborhoods are often the ones that need an economic boost or property facelift the most. Are rural areas, small towns, and isolated neighborhoods destined to decay, or to wait until the market changes (which may never happen)? In such situations, thinkers like E.F. Schumacher, (Small is Beautiful) encourage us to avoid common best practices for land reuse and to think smaller and more locally to build the necessary momentum for revitalization. Using a suite of techniques known as "New Economy" strategies, developers can begin to think differently about how to mitigate the risks associated with projects in areas that are otherwise unlikely to be developed. With only a few small changes to how we think about land reuse in rural areas, it is possible to generate organic momentum around traditional and non-traditional projects. The webinar will feature examples and brief case studies from the field, as well as a Q&A session following the presentation. For those who can’t attend the live session, we’ll provide a recording.

Take a drive down Route 66, an American landmark with a rich history and vibrant future, in CCLR's video Reimagining Route 66. Once a thriving thoroughfare, Route 66 was deserted for faster freeways leaving abandoned gas stations and economic strife in its wake. The EPA Brownfields Program and state and local initiatives are addressing the issue: How can Route 66 be cleaned up to promote economic vitality and bring new life to rural communities? Brownfields have already been cleaned up and restored for new use as parks and transit depots in communities like Winslow and Flagstaff. Potential redevelopment opportunities also include land for green technology such as solar and wind energy.

It might actually be rocket science! Join NASA collaborators ecoSPEARS and Intrinsyx on a webinar about cost-effective, in-situ technologies that remediate PCBs, chlorinated solvents, metals, and other toxins. Phytoremediation is EPA accepted for many different types of pollution. Intrinsyx uses naturally occurring tree bacterial endophytes that can result in faster tree growth and establishment, resulting in faster clean up and improved tree survival. ecoSPEARS provides a cradle-to-grave system for removing and destroying the world’s deadliest and most persistent toxins, including PCBs, with minimal impact to the environment and wildlife. Learn how these may work locally on your sites at a fraction of the cost of conventional remediation methods.
