Brownfields: A Redevelopment Game Changer

Posted on: November 10th, 2015 by Brett Schwartz

Does your community have an abandoned building, old gas station, or other potentially contaminated site that is impeding your future growth? Are there properties in your community that could help revitalize a business district, provide community space, or host a new housing development? Do you wonder where funding could come from to transform these properties into community assets?  At this session during NADO’s Annual Training Conference, participants heard from experts in the national Technical Assistance to Brownfields Communities (TAB) Program to learn how brownfields can be cleaned up, redeveloped, and used to reignite your community’s economic engine.
