Late in 2004, a group of interested parties believed that the creation of a state brownfields organization in LA. could help promote further redevelopment and revitalization of potentially contaminated property in LA.
In July of 2006, the Louisiana Brownfields Association was born. Our mission is to promote a broad range of Brownfields-related objectives and initiatives, including environmental restoration, economic revitalization, natural resource preservation, conservation and recreational-based beneficial reuse, enhancement of financial and regulatory incentives, job creation and training, public health, environmental equity and justice and community outreach and education.
The Louisiana Brownfields Association, through community outreach and education, promotes a wide array of Brownfields-related goals, objectives and initiatives, including environmental restoration, economic development and revitalization, natural resources preservation, enhancement of financial and regulatory incentives, and protection of human health.
The Louisiana Brownfields Association strives to accomplish this mission through a diverse membership that includes a wide variety of stakeholders, including property owners; developers; local, State, and Federal agency representatives; urban and regional planners; regulatory experts; community leaders; legal experts; financial and insurance industry representatives; environmental professionals, and other parties that may be interested in promoting Brownfield-related goals.
In 2014, the Louisiana Brownfields Association achieved 501(c)6 non-profit status.
