Abstract
A model is developed through the analysis of Block D, a brownfield in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. This location was the site of the Canadian Locomotive Company‟s “Locomotive Works”, and so is a site of significant contamination. Brownfield Policy is examined, and interviews are conducted with industry and political leaders, including the developers of the site, Ontario Minister of the Environment, academic expert, Manager of Brownfield and Initiatives with the City of Kingston and a member of the Sydenham Ward Tenants and Ratepayers Association (SWTRA). It is the combination of these analyses with archival research that provides the base of this document. The culmination of the results from the interviews allows for the development of a successful case study for brownfield remediation and development.
