Lack of redevelopment is a huge concern to us living in the Eastside. Our community is economically disadvantaged, with above average unemployment rates. It’s part of the reason why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Redevelopment Program is actively involved in the Jacksonville area.

The Brownfields Programs empowers communities, local governments and other stakeholders in economic development to work together to prevent, assess, clean up and reuse brownfields. A brownfield site is property which may be complicated by actual or perceived environmental contamination during the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of the property.

The Eastside makes up part of the largest Brownfield Site in Duval County called the Pilot Project Area BF160001000
