Cleaning up, Redevelopment and Reuse of Vacant Contaminated Industrial site: People’s Perceptions and Preferences - The aim of this paper is to investigate people’s perception and preference for the remediation and reuse of industrial brownfields sites. Other main objectives are to investigate if people know about abandoned and contaminated sites and if they understand the potential beneficial effects deriving from cleanup and reuse of these sites. Moreover we want to understand if people perceive soil and water contamination and if they consider themselves exposed to environmental risks caused by contaminated sites. Do they support remediation and reuse initiatives? What are their preferred reuse options? Method and Results In order to understand people’s opinions we have administered a questionnaire to the residents in the surroundings of Venice. The questionnaire was selfadministered by the respondents using computers and we collected 400 questionnaires. Conclusions We find that people are very familiar with the problem of contaminated and abandoned sites and they are mainly worried about the effects of contamination on human health and on the general environment. Furthermore, they strongly support future public reuse programs like green parks, cultural and other recreational facilities. They don’t appreciate industrial and other productive reuse alternatives.
