Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Sustainable Brownfields Redevelopment at Brownfields 2000
Three presentations and one poster provide insight into the Sustainable 
Brownfields Process (SBR), the Next Generation brownfields initiative 
based on ASTM Standard 1984-98 and designed to implement 'best 
practices' in a multi-stakeholder environment, will be featured at 
Brownfields 2000.

On Wednesday afternoon from 1-2:30pm, a presentation will occur in Room 
308-309, on the Went Field Park Restoration and Expansion project. Went 
Field is located in an Enterprise Community in Bridgeport, Ct. This 
project, now in construction, has utilized the SBR process for two 
years. The project has attracted $4mm in state, federal, city and other 
support; achieved consensus around the reuse and expansion of the park; 
and used stakeholder involvement to fight crime and eliminate blight 
from the neighborhood.  Residents and city officials as well as 
environmental health professionals will be on hand to discuss the 
project and share lessons learned about the process.

On Thursday morning, from 10:30-12pm in Room 409, The Partnership for 
Sustainable Brownfields Redevelopment, will present a new evaluation for 
planning and determining the success of a multi-stakeholder brownfields 
redevelopment process. This new tool will be shared with participants 
and feedback will be sought.

On Thursday afternoon from 2:00-3:30pm, Tim Fields will moderate a panel 
on the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative. The Avtex Redevelopment 
Initiative, which has been piloting the SBR process for two years, will 
be featured. Representatives from EPA, FMC Corporation, and the Warren 
County-Front Royal Economic Development Authority will present progress 
to date including a plan for a 200-acre Park along the Shenandoah River. 

Haddam, Ct. will present a poster on their SBR process will includes 
brownfeilds sites around the Town Center. The process implemented in 
Haddam includes a town-wide survey and engagement of all major 
stakeholder groups in town.

By visiting one or more of these sessions, you can learn how to 
implement the SBR process at your sites and in your community. See how 
others are rebuilding communities as they redevelop sites. See you at 
Brownfields 2000.
