Join Stoel Rives at The Economics of Revitalization Forum
, a two-part series presented by the Minnesota Brownfields. Stoel Rives' Steve Heurung
will be in attendance, as well as Kevin Johnson
, who will present the Welcome and opening remarks. Stoel Rives is proud to be the Event Sponsor for Part I of the Forum.
We are in the midst of one of modern time's most challenging economies for commercial and industrial development. Brownfield sites, however, because of their locational advantages, are strong contenders for an economic comeback with a competitive regional edge. Getting these sites up and running, requires creativity and knowledge of the current financial environment.
Part I will investigate the relative costs and benefits of brownfield redevelopment, digging into the latest findings from Minnesota and around the country on the economic, fiscal, environmental and community impacts of redeveloping brownfields at the city, regional and state level.
Part II will discuss the financial dimensions of brownfield reuse and redevelopment, available public and private financing tools, and the perspectives of lenders and developers who are taking part in the challenges and opportunities of financing brownfield projects.
