What All Local Governments Need to Know about Brownfields


Thursday, March 20, 2014
9:30am - 1:30pm
Chester County EDC
737 Constitution Drive
Exton, PA 19341


This half-day seminar, which will focus on how to breathe life into abandoned and vacant properties, is offered free of charge and lunch will be provided.  Participants will learn about successful brownfield redevelopment projects in their area, learn the basics of brownfields, find out where public funding is available and how to apply for it, and network with other municipal organizations.


Brownfields are properties that are in need of expansion, redevelopment or reuse, but because of actual or anticipated hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants, that work is made more challenging. Pennsylvania’s approach to brownfields redevelopment has proven to be a national model for transforming abandoned, idle properties into places of environmental protection and economic opportunity.
