Brownfield Redevelopment Plan for Johnson, Vermont - 2015


Town of Johnson, Vermont

The Town of Johnson has two large parcels of land that are deemed contaminated under the State Brownfield Program.  The Town needed to determine the highest and best of the property in order to create a redevelopment plan that involved private investors in partnership with public entities.  Crane Associates was hired to determine the highest and best use of these parcels.  The work involved: a demographic and economic forecast; an existing conditions analysis; employment and labor market analysis; Shift Share and Location Quotient Analysis to determine the Town’s competitive economic advantage; and a determination of the highest and best use of the property.  The report results show that seven specific uses would likely result in a successful project.  This uses included food-based manufacturing; food storage; beverage manufacturing; maker spaces; town recreation center; hospitality training and culinary arts center; manufacturing of buildings; and an expansion of a local private school.
