Large Site Redevelopment Requirements (if company is leaving)


We have a large facility here in a dense area that may be looking to relocate. Their current site is 15-20 acres and we currently have no codes that would require them to demo and remove all the current built-environment. How have any other communities dealt with this in a populated area? We're hoping the site would be left in a developable state but can't necessarily require it. Does anyone have tips or tricks we might use?
