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.

Programs

CCLR is the Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) provider to EPA Regions 9 and 10 (AK, AZ, CA, HI, ID, NV, OR, WA). We can provide pro bono assistance.

Brownfields present a challenging financial puzzle. The additional cost of assessment and remediation may seem insurmountable.

Urban planning and development have a history steeped with racist policies and practices. Learn best practices when working in vulnerable communities.

Areas that host nuclear power plants benefit from planning for economic diversification, whether plant closure is imminent or down the road.

We believe that it’s not enough to work in the land reuse sphere. Brownfield redevelopment needs leadership at the federal level to advocate.

Many of the sites that remain available for reuse require greater expertise, funding, and creativity to make redevelopment a reality.
