§ 6655. State plan for brownfield reclamation

The agency of natural resources and the agency of commerce and community development shall jointly develop a state plan for brownfield reclamation that includes both of the following:

(1) An inventory and assessment of potential sites prioritized by the ease of reducing the threat to public health, the availability of development opportunities, and the highest expected return on public investment.

(2) Methods and strategies for coordinating remediation with eventual usage of the sites, reclamation of high priority projects, financing projects with various public and private funding, and assuring consistent investment by the state for a minimum of ten years in order to return as many properties as possible to recreation, parks, green space, housing, and commercial uses.
