Our project examined the roles of the Community Reinvestment Act for the private redevelopment and reinvestment of what are commonly known as brownfield sites. We interviewed prominent developers, lenders, and government officials in order to understand the development and lending process as it applies to the redevelopment of brownfield sites. The data from our interviews served as the basis for research policy recommendations to the Mayor and City Manager of the City of Worcester.
