The Environmental Protection Commission was delegated the administration of the Brownfields Program in Hillsborough County, effective June 15, 2004. EPC has participated as an interested party in the Brownfields program to date and has the expertise and resources to successfully administer the program within Hillsborough County.

The FDEP and EPC believe that authorizing the local program to negotiate Site Rehabilitation Agreements and oversee the environmental cleanup of brownfields will facilitate expansion of the program within the County.

If you have questions concerning the EPC’s Brownfields Program please call Allison Amram, P.G. of the EPC at (813) 627-2600, ext. 1294.

Florida's IKEA Store

Originally developed and operated as a cannery from 1936 until 1981, the site of Florida’s IKEA store had been characterized by local media as a “gritty industrial site between the Port of Tampa and Ybor City”. Panattoni Development purchased the property in 2005 and entered the Florida Brownfields Redevelopment Program in 2007.  Watch a video from an IKEA representative regarding the building of IKEA in Tampa and working with EPC.
