GLIN==> Brownfield Demographic Study



Posted on behalf of Christine Reading <creading@aeg1.com>

---
Anderson Economic Group, a consulting firm with expertise in environmental
economics and the environmental justice field, will be releasing Wednesday
morning a study on the demographics of urban communities in the State of
Michigan hosting numerous sites of historic environmental contamination,
commonly known as "brownfields."

The study, undertaken by Patrick L. Anderson, managing director of Anderson
Economic Group, and Ian Clemens, AEG consultant, is one of the first to
objectively document the relationship between minority and low-income
populations and proximity to environmental hazards.

The study will be of interest to those concerned about the exposure of urban
residents to environmental hazards, to those involved in the "environmental
justice" debate, and those concerned with redeveloping the "brownfield"
sites that are scattered across Detroit, Flint, Pontiac, Grand Rapids,
Lansing, and many other Michigan cities.

The study will be available, in adobe acrobat format, on the AEG website at
www.aeg1.com early in the morning of Wednesday, January 5, 2000. The web
site will also feature an interactive database of urban brownfield
communities and a map showing these communities in the State of Michigan.
