Flagstaff Brownfield Land Recycling Program

Flagstaff city seal

The City of Flagstaff Brownfield Land Recycling Program Exiting EPA (disclaimer) works with property owners within the Flagstaff city limits to revitalize contaminated land. Flagstaff grew up around the railroad, lumber mills and Route 66 fuel and repair shops, which left the city with a legacy of concerns of potential contamination. In order to reclaim this land and put it back into productive use, contamination issues must first be addressed. The Brownfield Land Recycling Program has been awarded almost $416,000 in Brownfields funding from EPA and ADEQ to conduct environmental site assessments and cleanups. Flagstaff’s success lies in its approach to redevelopment; instead of targeting one individual property at a time, the city has taken a corridor approach to revitalize a large portion of the Route 66 corridor to ensure an area-wide revitalization where property reuses are integrated with one another.
