Revitalizing Appalachia through Brownfields: Free Conference Nov 3

Happy Labor Day! Seems like a fitting day given the region’s current employment landscape to think about new job opportunities. The Kentucky Brownfield Program is getting that conversation going through the lens of community revitalization.

Thanks to Southern Brownfield Report for this announcement:

All too often, communities in Appalachia are faced with properties that cannot be redeveloped or reused due to real or perceived contamination. On Nov. 3, 2010, at the Greenbo State Resort Park in Greenup, Ky., the Kentucky Brownfield Program invites you to participate in a first-ever event to explore how federal, state and local programs, both governmental and nongovernmental, can work together to turn these properties into productive areas that can revitalize a community. Participants will enjoy a one-day event of interaction, engagement and active problem-solving. If you are passionate about your community and want to engage with others, please join us at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park. Registration is free and open to the public, however voluntary donations to support this effort and others like it are greatly appreciated. Check out the agenda for the event.
