The Clark Fork River Technical Assistance Committee's website explains how Redevelopment fits with Remediation and Restoration. Redevelopment capitalizes the opportunities afforded by the Superfund cleanup and restoration efforts for community revitalization. How would the public benefit from the years of work and millions of dollars that went into cleaning up the Milltown Superfund site?

In 2003, the Milltown Superfund Redevelopment Working Group was formed, comprising of Bonner-Milltown residents, representatives of community groups, and river stakeholders all appointed by the Missoula County Commissioners. Funded by an EPA grant, the Working Group has played a key role in community projects that have spun-off from the Milltown Superfund effort. The Working Group, with community involvement, created a conceptual redevelopment plan that led in part to the creation of the Bonner community council, development of trails in the Piltzville area, and the construction of the new pedestrian bridge, community-based restoration and efforts to preserve and celebrate local history and culture. It also worked with Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks and Missoula County on developing at state park at the Milltown site.
