Nuts and Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields Properties for Local Government
Many communities have been left with vacant contaminated land that blights local neighborhoods and undermines the local tax base. The Nuts and Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields for Local Government training course addresses the issues and obstacles to redeveloping contaminated properties for productive reuse. Being held for the 4th consecutive year in Kansas City, Missouri, participants learn how many communities have overcome obstacles and stimulated successful redevelopment by characterizing and assembling parcels, cleaning up sites, and using public and private funds to attract redevelopment.
