The Michigan Chapter of the National Brownfield Association, in partnership with several other organizations including the MEDC and the MDEQ, is sponsoring a program at the Lansing Center on November 13.
The agenda will include the latest developments on brownfield redevelopment initiatives, including legislative and policy changes under Act 381, the MDEQ Grant and Loan Program, the Community Revitalization Program, and Part 201. You will hear about new Due Care developments, vapor intrusion developments and new ASTM standards and how these changes affect redevelopment. Experts will also describe environmental insurance products that can help brownfield redevelopment projects as well as case studies of two prominent brownfield projects in the state of Michigan. Speakers will include representatives of the MEDC, the MDEQ, and the private sector.
The program will run from 9:00 a.m. until approximately 3:00 p.m., and lunch will be provided.
Registration information will be forthcoming within the next two weeks. Stay tuned.
