  • The Lehigh Valley Land Recycling Initiative

    Wednesday, December 11, 04:00 pm - 04:30 pm
    West Hall A – Area A
    Learning Lounges
    Track 1: Sustainability, Livability, Resiliency
    This session will overview the 20+ year history of a public-private partnership of 25 people that has guided hundreds of acres across the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania through the redevelopment process using Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection funding and EPA brownfields program funding. The general purpose of this presentation will be to focus on the partnership and relationship building between stakeholders that is crucial to the success of a redevelopment program. Discussion will be focused on partnering with Governmental and Regulatory agencies and on Pennsylvania's ACT 2 program which provides liability release for individuals who are eligible. The key takeaway from this session will be a blueprint of engagment that can help individuals create the partnerships needed for success to happen.
