    Town Meeting Conversations
    Track 6: Liability and Enforcement
    New York University Professor Barry Hersh wrote in 2018 that “Brownfield redevelopment has now become a movement,” and this town meeting is your invitation to join it. Don’t let public policy puzzle you -- in this session, you’ll hear what’s happening in D.C. from the people who live and breathe it every day. Get an update on what's happening in the nation's capital as experts provide the latest information on brownfield policy and related developments. We’ll go beyond the usual discussion of brownfield funding to explore how the wider world of public policy is impacting land reuse, covering transportation and TOD, the tax bill, Opportunity Zones, infrastructure, and more. Being a savvy brownfields practitioner requires a knowledge of public policy and how it works, and this session is your invitation to take your knowledge of the field to a new level. In addition to providing policy updates, speakers will facilitate discussions on opportunities for bipartisan progress, with an emphasis on the activities of the National Brownfields Coalition, a group of public and private sector practitioners who track and participate in national brownfields policy conversations. Until you know the policy story, you won't have the full picture. Join this conversation to get educated about public policy and start thinking about your brownfield redevelopment work and the money that funds it in a whole new way.
