Fw: Course Announcement - Nuts & Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields (and other contaminated 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 & Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields (and other contaminated
properties) for Local Government training course addresses the issues
and obstacles to redeveloping contaminated sites for productive reuse.
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.

This year's course is being hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) Region 7, the Northeast Midwest Institute, and Great Lakes
Environmental Planning and will be held at the Discovery Center, located
at 4750 Troost Ave., Kansas City, Missouri from July 31 through August
4.  Participants will hear from experts in topical areas such as the
economics of brownfield redevelopment, environmental site assessments,
underground storage tanks, historic preservation incentives, legal
liabilities associated with contaminated sites, sustainable
redevelopment, funding opportunities, among many others.  A course
agenda is attached.
