Brownfields for Bankers Workshop

Bankers, developers and development agency officials will want to mark their calendars to attend the Brownfields for Bankers Workshop on Aug. 10, 2017. This workshop will provide an introduction to brownfield redevelopment, since developers are increasingly recognizing the value of revitalizing brownfields. Brownfields are properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to real or perceived environmental contamination.

Topics to be covered in the workshop include:

  • Federal environmental liability and exemptions for lenders and bona fide prospective purchasers,
  • Kentucky’s new brownfield law that reduces uncertainty in the redevelopment process,
  • Incentives that are available to assist in brownfield redevelopment and
  • A case study of how a community eyesore has been transformed into a thriving business and asset to the neighborhood.

Speakers include:

  • Herb Petitjean, Brownfield Coordinator — Division of Compliance Assistance, Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program, Kentucky Dept. for Environmental Protection
  • Cindy Nolan, Brownfield Section Chief — Resource Conservation and Restoration Division: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • Jake Moss, Annville Institute
  • Jim Kirby, Environmental Scientist — Division of Waste Management, Kentucky Dept. for Environmental Protection
  • Holly Weidmann, Principal with AU Associates
