West Va. ‘Ready, Set, Redevelop’ Slated For September
The 2017 WVBrownfields Conference, hosted by the West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Centers, will take place at the Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown Sept. 12-14.
The theme for this year’s conference is "Ready, Set, Redevelop." It kicks off Sept. 12 with training for licensed remediation specialists, a grant writing workshop, and mobile workshops highlighting brownfields projects in Morgantown. The first full day of the conference, Sept. 13, will feature programming and sessions related to brownfield redevelopment in West Virginia. The final day, Sept. 14, will feature sessions covering regional brownfields topics impacting Central Appalachia.
Attendance each year has increased “and this year should be no different,” Patrick Kirby, director of the Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center at West Virginia University, said in a release announcing the event.
“As a new part of the conference, we will host a “Women in Brownfields” gathering and for the second year in a row we will have pre-conference workshops and host the Central Appalachian Regional Brownfields Summit. The opportunity to showcase the amazing work happening in West Virginia and other Central Appalachian states is something we take great pride in. The revitalization of brownfield properties is instrumental in our state and region’s future economic development
The conference is in its 12th year.
