Economic Development Brownfield Workshop

October 18, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Does your community have an abandoned building, old gas station or other potentially contaminated building that is impeding your community’s future growth? Do you have properties you are afraid to buy for fear of inherent liability issues?


Attend a free brownfields workshop on October 18 co-hosted by the Illinois EPA Brownfields Program, the City of Ottawa, and the Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) Program at Kansas State University designed to help communities gain a better understanding of what a Brownfield is, learn how Brownfield revitalization can be a part of your community’s economic development strategy, and hear from state and national leaders on resources available to your community.


Who should attend? Local and regional government officials, not-for-profit economic and community development organizations, lenders and real estate professionals, property owners, and anyone interested in learning about brownfields or about financial resources for local redevelopment.
