Mark your calendar! On Thursday, March 20, Herb Petitjean, from the Division of Compliance Assistance’s (DCA) Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program, will be on a panel at the fifth annual Go Green Save Green Workshop in Lexington, Ky. The panel’s topic is “Funding for Land Recycling – Turning a Community Eyesore Into a Community Asset.” Since every community has brownfields or sites that are abandoned or possibly contaminated, it is important for communities to know how to find the funding to clean up and redevelop these sites for productive reuse. DCA’s KY EXCEL Coordinator, John Eisiminger, will also be on hand as an exhibitor for the event.
KY EXCEL member Bluegrass Greensource, formerly Bluegrass PRIDE, will be partnering with the Kentucky U.S. Green Building Council to host the workshop. Expanded topics will include Composting Workshops, Grants for Efficiency and Water Quality, Thermal Comfort in LEED and many more that would benefit any business or organization.
