With an amended Brownfield Plan occurring 2008, a new cancer center was slated to create over 700 jobs. Due to changes in the economy and strategic planning efforts Munson declined to pursue developing the cancer center in 2012. While the cancer center did not come to fruition as planned, numerous other redevelopment activities occurred that were facilitated through environmental cleanup and taxing jurisdictions were reimbursed for TIF revenues held to support the Cancer Center in the form of a new public parking garage.
