Brownfield Redevelopment in Small Towns and Rural Areas
Increasingly, developers are recognizing the value of revitalizing brownfields—properties that are abandoned or underused due to real or perceived environmental contamination. This workshop for bankers, developers and development agency officials will provide an introduction to brownfield redevelopment. Topics to be covered include:
- Federal environmental liability and exemptions for lenders and bona fide prospective purchasers
- Kentucky’s brownfield law, intended to reduce uncertainty in the redevelopment process
- Incentives for brownfield redevelopment
- A case study of how a community eyesore has been transformed into a thriving business and neighborhood asset
