Brownfield Redevelopment

Brownfields are defined as “real property for which the expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.”


The goal of the Brownfield Program, and the Sault Ste. Marie Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, is to repurpose these sites, thus increasing the site’s taxable value, utilizing public infrastructure that may already be in place, and preserving green space.

High school freshman from Sault Ste. Marie to Engadine joined the Eastern Upper Peninsula Intermediate School District for “Freshman Manufacturing” day at Lake Superior State University annually in October. This event gives students a day to explore local career opportunities with hands-on presentations led by area manufacturing firms. Several career paths were represented by these companies, from welding to robotics, and each showcase the work they do, answer student questions, and led interactive activities that give students a feel for what the field has to offer.

Freshman Manufacturing Day is one of the many ways the EUPISD works to prepare students for life post-graduation. They offer extensive CTE opportunities that allow them to gain hands-on experiences and employable skills that help them build a competitive, professional resume while still in high school. These pathways allow students to graduate from high school with opportunities in high-demand fields, where their education can furthered through paid apprenticeships and on-the-job training.

Freshman Manufacturing Day is a collaboration between the EUPISD, MichiganWorks!, the Eastern Upper Peninsula Region MiStem Network, LSSU, and the Sault EDC.

If you are a manufacturing entity, or work in a skilled trade and would like to be a part of this event in the future, please contact us.
