Join the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC) and the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR) on the evening of May 6th for “Turning a Liability into an Asset: Remediating and Redeveloping Brownfields in New Jersey.” Brownfields - or vacant and/or underutilized properties where there is known or suspected environmental contamination - are enormously prevalent in New Jersey. There are likely multiple properties in each of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities. These sites sit idle because they are a challenge to sell and their redevelopment may be complicated by the real or perceived presence of environmental contamination. In spite of these challenges, brownfields remediation and redevelopment is a priority for many municipalities to stimulate economic development, mitigate threats to public health, and further communities’ environmental justice goals. In this hour-long webinar, speakers will:
• walk you through the nine steps of brownfield redevelopment outlined in ANJEC and CCLR’s recently updated “Remediating & Redeveloping Brownfields in New Jersey: A Guide for Municipalities and Community Organizations”
• devote special attention to the purpose and methods of conducting a brownfields inventory;
• spotlight land reuse success stories from around New Jersey;
• and outline the resources available as you and your community embark down the road to redevelopment.
