    Town Meeting Conversations
    Track 2: Financing Options, Real Estate, & Economic Development
    Beth Grigsby, KSU TAB partner and SME Sr. Project Consultant, will moderate a panel of two developers deeply experienced in brownfield redevelopment. Ms. Hashem will provide insight on large industrial site redevelopment conducted nationally. Ms. Scott will focus on affordable and market rate housing development across 18 States. Most brownfield redevelopment projects require public/private partnerships or other forms of public support, and each panelist will discuss why federal, state and local resources are critical to a successful development. Panelists will provide their individual case studies of the brownfields they have tackled, and lessons learned over time. Case studies will include individual perspectives on selection of sites for development, assessment/cleanup process, managing liability, modifications to construction plans to mesh with remediation requirements and manage liability, use of federal, state or local funding and other related financing topics. Each developer will describe the positive economic and environmental impacts of their projects. Panel members will also comment on how communities make their brownfields sites shovel-ready and eliminate common barriers that impede timely progress on their projects. Learning objectives include: Developer’s perspective of the brownfield redevelopment process and how a community can prepare their site for redevelopment.
