4th Annual Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop
Thursday, Jun 7, 2012
New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are states which, during the recent economic downturn, have reassessed and recast their redevelopment and remediation programs to drive area-wide revitalization to achieve economic development, create jobs and revitalize local and state economies. Often these redevelopment plans involve areas affected by Brownfield sites and other vacant and abandoned properties. Hear about how these states, and New York City with its unique municipally-implemented program and its agreement with the state, are taking aggressive actions to fund or otherwise facilitate strategic and catalytic redevelopment plans that will further these economic goals while returning Brownfield sites to productive reuse. Learn about liability protections, cutting red-tape, standardizing remedies and remediation privatization.
