Michael My experience is a bit geographically eclectic, so it may not be helpful. In general, the main "benefit to the community" that I have seen is an increase in demand for semi-skilled and trainable laborers. In the United States (and other places), I have done some work with groups attempting to tie-in programs for community-focused training in environmental remediation (and conservation) technology (etc.) as a mandatory requirement of governmental permissions and benefits in contamination redevelopment programs. Other than that, my experience would follow the pattern (following broad-based "gentrification") -- increased demand on other lower-end residential markets in the vicinity, with the attendant problems, I'm afraid.
