Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Brownfields Redevelopment Initiative was kicked off in September 2012 with a community meeting held at City Hall. Since that time, staff has been compiling data for potential brownfield sites and has already begun the task of prioritizing sites for initial assessments.

Please explore this site for useful information about brownfields, the brownfields program, the city's redevelopment initiative, and how to get involved. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact staff at 910.342.2779 or


On June 6, 2011, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that the City of Wilmington was a recipient of a 2011 Brownfields Assessment Grant under the EPA Brownfields Program.

The EPA's Brownfields Program empowers local governments and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfield sites. The city’s grant is being used to inventory potential public and private brownfield properties and perform Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) on selected priority sites. This information will aid prospective developers in understanding the costs and liabilities associated with purchasing and redeveloping brownfield sites, thereby improving their ability to secure financing.
