The goal of the Calumet Reinvestment Mapping Tool (CRMT) is to bring underutilized sites in the Calumet region back into productive reuse. The Brownfield Working Group created this map as a baseline of brownfield and underutilized sites so that the best future use can be determined. Additional information is needed to determine a site’s highest and best use and data layers of economic development tools, environmental data, social vulnerability, land use and zoning have been added. The Calumet Collaborative hopes this mapping tool will assist in addressing potential contamination and advancing sustainable development practices in the region.
