EBC Connecticut Webinar: Brownfields Funding and Planning Updates – When Life Gives You Lemons…

September 15, 2020 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

In many ways, 2020 has been a year of reckoning, forcing us to rethink how we conduct business and approach many persistent problems. These challenges have also provided a window of opportunity to reassess our brownfield sites and explore new approaches to overcoming long-standing obstacles.  This EBC Connecticut Webinar features timely presentations on adaptive reuse and planning strategies that have proven successful at brownfield sites, as well as funding opportunities and updates from state and federal Brownfield programs.

A robust question and answer panel discussion between presenters and attendees will take place following the presentations.

Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Please send an email to EBC staff (ebc@ebcne.org) following the conclusion of the program to receive a certificate.
