EN This research aims at introducing a clear, sustainable framework for brownfield regeneration that focuses on the role of community in urban regeneration. The town of Al-Fuheis, Jordan, is losing its shine under clouds of dust and chemical emissions. It needs regeneration so that social and economic struggles can be simultaneously addressed through innovative regeneration. In order to reach this goal, a qualitative analysis was presented to introduce the general framework of brownfield regeneration. The structure of the framework depends on the researcher’s interpretation. Purposive sampling was used in this part of the study to involve the local community in taking decisions concerning regeneration. Their decisions must be considered during the master plan development. The brownfield regeneration model is summarized in a clear diagram. The results of a questionnaire analysis show the effective role of community to participate in urban regeneration. Applying the brownfield regeneration framework enhances the social, environmental, and economic value.
