"Because it's a brownfield site, it's a beneficial site"?

Maybe it's just me but that just doesn't feel like a balanced equation. How could potential serious clean-up problems on brownfield site ever equate into it being a "beneficial site to choose"?

"It's already pre approved for a ballpark"? Proponets of a taxpayer funded stadium are now touting this project as a mult-use facility, not just a ballpark. Does that make it pre-approved for a cub-scout camporee (one of the crazy mult-use suggestions) or some other similar activity? Does that make it pre-approved for the proposed city park outside the stadium. Do serious clean-up problems make it a beneficial place for a family with small children to have a pre ball game picnic on the lawn?

Again, maybe it's me, but I just can't seem to get comfortable with that.
