Economic Revitalization through Brownfields

August 31, 2016
Illinois Bank Conference Center, 431 S 4th St (Jackson), Springfield, IL 62701

Does your community have an abandoned building, gas station, or other potentially contaminated or reuse challenged property, commonly referred to as a 'brownfield'?  Is this property or properties holding back your community’s growth? Is the private sector ignoring these sites or are you looking for sources of funding to help turn them into new businesses or community amenities? This workshop will focus on the various resources available to assist with redevelopment of brownfield and underutilized sites to bring them back to beneficial use.
