    Track 2: Financing Options, Real Estate, & Economic Development
    Learn land banking tactics for brownfields revitalization! Land banks are critical revitalization assets to the communities they serve because they accept, manage and reposition vacant, foreclosed and blighted properties. Hear how an established land bank authority from Ohio and a newly-formed brownfields land bank from Oregon tackle the specific challenges involved in bringing brownfield properties back into the community as revitalized sites. We’ll discuss important business model considerations and brownfields-specific strategies for site acquisition, liability protection, clearing title, reuse planning, paying for assessment and remediation, site repositioning and sale. The approaches used by these land banks are useful to any community with brownfield sites!
