As development has moved into rural and unincorporated areas, counties across the nation are increasingly left to provide solutions for these vacant properties. Brownfields are no longer an urban/metropolitan problem. Counties are finding opportunities to partner with municipal governments, state and federal agencies and the private sector to convert vacant and potentially contaminated sites into a wide range of uses from parks and wildlife areas to commercial and industrial properties.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) is hosting a three-part Brownfields Webinar Series from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. EST. Key topics include: Key Impediments to Redevelopment, Approaches to Unlocking Potential, Entitlement Issues, Repositioning, Parceling/Assembling Sites, Creating Portfolios, Green Development, and Attracting Developers to Tough Sites.
* Michael Taylor, Facilitator and National Brownfields Expert
* Barry Hersh, Brownfields Developer
