The Kalamazoo County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (KCBRA) is a county-wide redevelopment authority created by the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners as allowed by Michigan PA 381, the Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act. The KCBRA focuses on facilitating and supporting the redevelopment of brownfield sites throughout the county. The KCBRA has become a major resource and partner for positive economic change in Kalamazoo County helping to assess and understand contaminated sites, foster job creation, eliminate blight, re-use properties and infrastructure, and leverage investment.

What is a Brownfield?

A brownfield site is real property where expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant. Michigan further defines brownfield sites as blighted, functionally obsolete or historic resource.
