dc.description.abstract This study reveals the potential for an abandoned, underutilized industrial site in the small town of Charlestown, Indiana to be redeveloped as a sustainable mixed-use development. In recent years, the redevelopment of brownfield sites, such as the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant (INAAP) in Charlestown, has become an important and popular topic in the field of landscape architecture and land development. The presence of numerous abandoned post-industrial sites throughout the United States has pushed redevelopment of these underutilized sites t the forefront of concern. In addition, the environmental movement has helped thrust sustainable and dense mixed-use developments into a position of importance. To this point in history, it has been rare that these three concepts have been successfully married in one design. Too often, projects claim the "sustainable" title while failing to consider the true impacts on the environment. The proposed redevelopment plan for the INAAP will bring the three concepts (redevelopment, sustainability, and mixed-use development) into harmony.
