What are Brownfields? A Brownfields site is real property of which the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse may be complicated by contamination or perceived contamination on the property. Reuse and redevelopment of abandoned, idled, or underutilized properties (a.k.a. brownfields) is both a challenge and an opportunity. Putting these sites back into productive use can serve as a catalyst for local economic revitalization.
Who Should Attend? Previous workshop attendees include local and regional government, economic and community development staff, community grant writers, community groups, real estate developers, commercial real estate brokers, lenders, regional economic development agencies, consultants, and others interested in resources for local redevelopment. Please feel free to forward this message on to anyone you think may be interested in or would benefit from attending this workshop.
