About Us

Land reuse transforms communities.

Land recycling is about more than cleaning up and rebuilding on properties. How we choose to design and utilize the landscape is at the root of our quality of life. It is the basis of many environmental, social, and economic issues.

Services

Our technical assistance services provides training and support to start or restart your brownfield program, develop end-use visioning, and everything in between.

CLR can help you identify the right grants, private financing options, and incentives that meet your community’s needs and land reuse vision.

Effective brownfield grant management and understanding federal procurement policies are essential for redevelopment success.

CCLR can provide expert advice to help you make decisions and navigate cleanup requirements.

Equitable and sustainable land reuse projects empower marginalized communities in shaping how land is used to address inequity and support community assets.

CCLR works as a prime and subcontractor on many public and private funded land revitalization contracts.
