CCLR North Coast Brownfields Workshop
NORTH COAST BROWNFIELDS:
CREATING VIBRANT COMMUNITIES
Dear friends and colleagues:
I want to encourage you to participate in this Sept 21 workshop on how to finance cleanup and redevelopment of North Coast brownfields. We are able to offer this excellent training opportunity locally for a workshop fee of $95 instead of the usual $350/person through the generosity of sponsors K. Boodjeh Architect, SHN Consulting Engineers, Winzler & Kelly Consulting Engineers, HSU and the Center for Creative Land Recycling; and contributions from the City of Eureka, Planwest, County of Humboldt, and Spencer Engineering. If you don't already know what a problem brownfields are for local communities, unincorporated areas, and tribal-owned lands, call me, I'd be happy to talk with you about it. Space is limited so advance payment and reservations are required by 9/18/06.
Registration information is Below. Please join us on Sept 21 for this workshop.
The North Coast’s counties, small towns, and tribal-owned lands are all burdened with properties that have been undevelopable because they are thought to be contaminated and there is uncertainty about the cleanup necessary and the associated costs.
You are invited to an all-day, intensive workshop on brownfields cleanup and redevelopment. A team of brownfields specialists from the Center for Creative Land Recycling, (CCLR) will provide property owners, realtors, consultants, attorneys, redevelopment professionals, environmentalists, state and local officials and community members with a practical understanding of the resources available for transforming environmentally impaired properties, and how to use them. The specific knowledge and skills required to manage contaminant issues and finance brownfield cleanup and redevelopment will be covered in the following topics:
- Regulatory & Legal Framework
- Environmental Site Assessment & Cleanup
- Environmental Insurance
- Financial Resources
- Rural Case Study & Regional Examples
The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR, pronounced "see clear") is a nonprofit organization focused on creating sustainable communities by identifying and implementing responsible patterns of land use and development. Its mission is to encourage and facilitate land recycling in ways that revitalize urban areas, discourage urban sprawl, and conserve greenspace.
CCLR training events are highly recommended as one of the best sources of training and technical assistance available in the western states on brownfields, under-utilized or environmentally distressed properties. CCLR was founded in 1996 as a project of The Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national, nonprofit land conservation organization with seed funding from The James Irvine Foundation. CCLR promotes the reuse and recycling of previously developed and passed-over land and buildings in both urban and rural areas, with a focus on environmentally distressed properties – commonly called brownfields.
CCLR developed its training program after documenting a clear community need for technical, regulatory, and financial information on managing the environmental challenges of redevelopment projects. For more information about the trainers, go to CCLR. If you would like local references on the value of the CCLR training, contact the HSU Office for Economic, Community, & Business Development for these testimonials here or at (707) 826-3919.
The HSU Office for Economic, Community, & Business Development and the following sponsors and contributors are supporting a large portion of the cost of this training workshop so that the fee for each participant will be much less than the typical $300+ per person.
The fee for the CCLR North Coast Brownfields Workshop is $95 per person. This fee includes lunch and training materials.
