Dan Gilbert's Comments on the "Transitional" Brownfield Plan Bills at the Local Government Committee Lansing - Tuesday December 6th, 2016 Screenshot of Comments on SB 1061 – 65 FROM: http://www.freep.com/story/opinion/columnists/nancy-kaffer/2016/11/30/nancy-kaffer-workers-subsidize-business-economic-incentive-scheme/94608996/ If the state required every business to rebate a percentage of its revenues to employees, they'd call it socialism. But a bill package that passed the state Senate on Tuesday promises a different redistribution of wealth: Instead of paying taxes to state government, employees at up to 15 Michigan companies could pay as much as $250 million in taxes directly to their employers. As currently configured, businesses slated to receive tax rebates or abatements — economic development incentives doled out by the state to companies that meet certain criteria — pay taxes to the state. The state calculates how much money each abatement or rebate is worth, and cuts a check to the company. It bears repeating: This legislation would allow a business that creates jobs to keep the taxes it withholds from employees' paychecks. The taxes employees pay to fund government services like roads, schools, public safety and social services would be diverted directly into their employer's pocket.

By the early 2000s much of Detroit’s formerly active industrial riverfront was abandoned. Parking lots and vacant buildings blocked public access to the river. Detroit’s renaissance would be incomplete without opening the downtown riverfront for public access and events. The city would need to demolish vacant industrial sites, relocate cement silos, and redevelop vacant riverfront property. Unprecedented state, local, and citizen collaboration turned the Detroit riverfront from a blighted industrial corridor to a vibrant public space. Ten years after the MDEQ demolished cement silos on the river and awarded a transformative $7.2 million in grants for environmental cleanup and riverfront infrastructure, the Detroit riverfront is now the jewel of Detroit’s renaissance and a symbol of residents’ pride and involvement in their city. http://www.detroitriverfront.org/ Transform your community TODAY with help from the MDEQ.

Redeveloping brownfield sites is not easy work. Dedicated staff in the Toxics Cleanup Program at the Washington State Department of Ecology provide support to communities throughout the process and connect communities to critical resources needed to achieve their goals. All across the state, Integrated Planning Grants from the Department of Ecology can help prime brownfield sites for redevelopment. The beautiful Wenatchee waterfront is just one example of a community that benefited from an Integrated Planning Grant. The Wenatchee waterfront is an entire area that is being transformed by community vision. Bringing brownfield revitalization into the City of Wenatchee's plan for this area was an important step for this community. The City used an Integrated Planning Grant to develop a plan for reuse of the Worthen Street landfill site, which helped the City move forward with their vision for the overall waterfront. Integrated Planning Grants can fund preliminary work to help communities develop comprehensive strategies for cleanup and reuse of a contaminated site. -----For more information on Brownfields Integrated Planning Grants, see http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/tcp/brownfields/IP-grants.html The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) provided funds for this video through a State and Tribal Response Program grant authorized under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Section 128(a).

Wilmington residents will provide input on how to turn former industrial sites into vibrant properties in their communities. Wilmington will use a $197,500 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to plan the cleanup, redevelopment and productive reuse of a former auto salvage yard and a storage materials site. Several stakeholders and community members will work together to build a plan of action for the city-owned sites, located at 14th and Church Streets and 12th and Governor Printz Boulevard, both along the Brandywine River. “This is a great example of what we can do to energize the economy on this side of town,” said Mayor Mike Purzycki D-Wilmington, during a press conference near the old Diamond State Salvage facility.

Janesville, Wisconsin's downtown riverfront and adjoining neighborhoods are severely affected by brownfields and their health impacts. This project advanced strategic thinking and community engagement toward realizing the potential for the 240 acre Rock Renaissance Area and six high priority redevelopment sites. The Rock Renaissance Area Redevelopment and Implementation Strategy is known as ARISE. This project won a 2015 Merit Award for Analysis and Planning from the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The planning effort interpreted existing site environmental information, incorporated community planning efforts for the downtown, and assessed current market opportunities to maximize green and healthy design, facilitate future private development, improve river access, and spur job creation. The resulting draft plan will be a vision and implementation strategy for the Rock Renaissance Area, including improved connectivity, cohesive land use patterns, enhanced public space, and redevelopment recommendations and implementation strategies for the six key redevelopment sites. Funding has been granted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Program.

Green campaigners claim thousands of hectares of previously protected English countryside will be wrecked by new planning laws. Green campaigners have claimed thousands of hectares of previously protected English countryside will be wrecked when planning laws are relaxed. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) came into full force this week after a 12-month transition period for local councils. There are concerns that a very low percentage of councils have so far managed to prove that they have enough land to meet a five-year housing plan. Campaigners are concerned it will mean planning applications may be forced through on greenfield and potentially even greenbelt land. Sir Andrew Motion, president of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), says the policy is proving groundbreaking in all the wrong ways. He said: "This is a charter for builders and truly irreversible damage is already underway. It is urgent that something is done about it. "Developing greenfield sites is unnecessary and with inadequate local consultation is entirely the wrong way to make sure that we get the new homes the country so badly needs." The Government wants to build more affordable housing and encourage economic growth. It has defended the new planning laws. A spokesperson for the Department of Communities and Local Government said the NPPF safeguards greenbelt land. It added: "The National Planning Policy Framework has placed local plans in pole position and has introduced new local protections for valuable green spaces." They also said that red tape had been cut and nearly nine in 10 planning applications are now approved - a 10-year high. Residents and the local council in Tetbury in Gloucestershire is applying for a judicial review after Communities Secretary Eric Pickles overturned a decision to refuse applications to develop greenfield land in the town. The land is on the doorstep of Prince Charles' Highgrove House and could be turned into a housing estate. Campaigner Neil Cook said it was a test case that needed to send the right message to the government. He said: "These sites are precious. We are in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and part of that beauty is these greenfield sites. "If you build on them you'll never unbuild them. So if you're going to have areas of outstanding natural beauty you have to keep them ... and build on the brownfield sites".

Cook County, in partnership with a coalition of seven west suburban municipalities, is working to return brownfield properties to productive use to encourage economic development. The Cook County Department of Environmental Control on behalf of the coalition that includes Schiller Park, Franklin Park, Northlake, Melrose Park, Bellwood, Maywood and Forest Park -- received in 2014 a $600,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to assess brownfield sites in those communities. Through the program, 30 sites totaling approximately 127 acres were assessed and currently more than 120 acres are undergoing reuse planning or redevelopment. Brownfield sites generally are real property in which expansion, redevelopment or reuse of the property may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties protects the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands, according to the U.S. EPA. Removing the stigma of contamination from brownfield sites to get them back in use is an element of the Cook County sustainability plan developed under President Preckwinkle. “Brownfield sites typically sit underused for long periods of time,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said. “The redevelopment and reuse of brownfield sites is a great opportunity for economic development – redeveloped sites generate revenue and jobs while helping the environment.” The goal of this project was to assess and quantify environmental uncertainty associated with brownfield sites at no cost to coalition communities or property owners, and develop site-specific plans for reuse of sites. The next steps in the program involve redevelopment of the sites. Five of the sites already are under redevelopment with the potential for more than 200 jobs on those sites. Other sites assessed as part of this project are now ready to be marketed for redevelopment, or will be shortly. “It is with great pride in our West Cook Region and our Coalition Partners; the U.S. EPA and Cook County that Maywood was able to participate in the brownfield redevelopment program,” Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins said. “This program allowed the Village of Maywood to receive funding for environmental assessments that will lead to redevelopment of several vacant lots that had no hope for redevelopment. This program has restored hope and serves as a beacon for regional coalitions and public partnerships.” For Thomas Engoren, a business owner in Maywood, reuse of an adjacent brownfield site means the possibility of growing his company. “The work done by Cook County and the coalition means my business, Seaway Supply Co., can stay in Maywood and expand here – in a community I am proud to be a part of,” said Engoren, President of Seaway Supply Co., a janitorial and maintenance supplies wholesale distributor. Cook County looks forward to building on this productive model of partnerships with local communities to advance brownfield redevelopment in areas of need throughout the County.

Tennessee has many brownfield sites which pose potential health risks to the public. Developing these sites can often be very risky for developers. Mayor Madeline Rogero talks about how Knoxville, TN is looking at redeveloping brownfield sites as a way to reinvest in the city. "Like many cities, we have areas that are considered brownfields. They had previous industrial or hazardous type of use. Part of our economic development and redevelopment strategy is to reinvest from the inside out...The key to any redevelopment is the private sector. Our role in government, in my opinion, is to make the minimal public investment that will maximize private sector investment"
