8:30am – 2:15pm, Tuesday, August 16, Room 301 C/D
Enter the world of high stakes brownfield redevelopment through a collaborative and interactive workshop. This workshop places participants in the role of the community/owner of a complex, contaminated property working through the process of creating value and positioning the property for redevelopment. Participants will evaluate the property, develop a viable reuse plan, consider public funding sources and attract a developer. Working in teams, participants will identify needs and objectives for the property, conduct a reuse assessment, develop a reuse implementation strategy, and compete with other teams for a developer! Multiple developers will attend this workshop to help as each team creates their brownfields repositioning strategy. Participants will learn and apply land revitalization, real estate development principles to real-world brownfield redevelopment situations using EPA’s new guide, “Creating a Brownfields Investment Package.” Additionally, the workshop will provide insights into a proven land revitalization framework, understanding the different key players, and critical decision-making steps that determine the outcomes of redevelopment. See inside the process of how deals are made!
