    Panel Discussions
    Track 5: Are We Engaging the Local Community?
    This panel session will present multiple alternative modes of public outreach that have been used successfully to engage stakeholders in three (3) different brownfield area-wide planning processes, with a specific focus on modes that both diverge from the traditional meeting format and engage populations that are unlikely to participate in a traditional meeting format due to a variety of barriers. Drawing specifically on the recent example of the EPA Brownfield Area-Wide Plan conducted in the City of Orem, Utah as well as best practices within the community planning field, the panel presenters will share best practices for community engagement in brownfield planning so that session participants will be able to utilize these methods to increase the quantity and diversity of stakeholders engaged in their own brownfield programs.
