Inventory Services

Site Inventory Services

Brownfield Redevelopment Solutions, Inc. (BRS) brings strategic site inventory services to your organization, serving as a solid foundation for any successful planning and economic development program. We first conduct an extensive review of aerial photographs in addition to a comprehensive field survey to identify and quantify brownfield, vacant, industrial and commercial sites that are opportunities for redevelopment for community revitalization. This inventory becomes the basis for a dynamic planning tool, not just a static list of properties.

The inventory is the basis for the creation of the following services:

  • Database which supports user queries and generates useful reports to fulfill developer requests and track program progress;
  • Site inventory parcel links to GIS mapping capabilities;
  • Management tools to identify and prioritize sites for development;
  • Real estate Multiple Listing Service style fact sheets for each site to assist with site marketing;
  • Action plan creation for identified priority sites;
  • Reporting tools to assist in meeting USEPA quarterly reporting and site profile requirements for grants, and other grant reporting requirements;
  • Web accessible reports to serve as marketing tool; and 
  • Database compatibility with marketing venues such as the Multiple Listing Service, CoStar, and the NJ SmartMart.

  • Analysis of historic city business directories and telephone books;
