Brownfield Development Programs
Pasco Brownfield Community Redevelopment Program
Brownfields are properties where expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of environmental pollution. Established in 1997, the Florida Brownfields Redevelopment Program utilizes economic and regulatory incentives to encourage the use of private revenue to clean up and redevelop sites, create new jobs and enhance the local economy. The primary goals of the Florida Brownfield Redevelopment Act are:
  • Reduction of public health and environmental hazards 
  • Creation of financial and regulatory incentives to encourage voluntary cleanup and redevelopment of sites 
  • Attainment of cleanup target levels; and
  • Establishment of a process for obtaining a "No Further Action" letter using Risk-Based Corrective Action principles

To make the program’s incentives available to a community, a local government must designate brownfield areas by resolution. Currently, 279 brownfield areas have been designated statewide. In Pasco County, the Dade City Commerce Center has been designated by both the Board of County Commissioners and Dade City.

The Pasco Brownfield Community Redevelopment Program includes assistance and incentives to land owners and businesses to facilitate the environmental cleanup, redevelopment and/or reuse of property as part of the County's redevelopment and growth management strategy. Assistance may include administrative, regulatory, technical assistance, and financial incentives appropriate to the needs of the community through a program of site and area brownfield designations.
