Brownfield Redevelopment in Coralville
Future development in Coralville is limited to currently active agricultural production land, vacant land within residential areas, and brownfields areas. The only source of infill development land is the existing brownfields sites. However, redevelopment of these areas is hindered by perceived environmental contaminations, which the brownfields assessments attempt to address.
Brownfields work within Coralville is targeted at six identified zones throughout the City. View the Coralville Brownfields Zones.
In addition to benefiting the surrounding community, property owners that assess, clean up, and reuse their brownfield properties may:
Fulfill the All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) requirement through Phase I assessments
Avoid potential environmental enforcement actions
Receive tax benefits for cleaning up and reusing the property
Reduce the likelihood that contamination from the property will migrate off site or into the groundwater under the site
Establish goodwill within the community
Realize an enhanced return from the property by making it more valuable
Protect heirs from the burden of environmental cleanup
