Subject: [CPEO-BIF] [Fwd: Course Announcement - Nuts & Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields Properties for Local Government - Kansas City, Missouri - July 21-25, 2008]
Many communities have been left with vacant contaminated land that
blights local neighborhoods and undermines the local tax base.  The Nuts
& Bolts of Redeveloping Brownfields for Local Government training course
addresses the issues and obstacles to redeveloping contaminated
properties for productive reuse.  Being held for the 4th consecutive
year in Kansas City, Missouri, participants learn how many communities
have overcome obstacles and stimulated successful redevelopment by
characterizing and assembling parcels, cleaning up sites, and using
public and private funds to attract redevelopment.

This year's course is being hosted again by EPA Region 7, the
Northeast-Midwest Institute, and Great Lakes Environmental Planning and
will be held at the Discovery Center, located at 4750 Troost Avenue,
Kansas City, Missouri, from July 21 through July 25.  Participants will
hear from experts on topical areas such as the economics of brownfield
redevelopment, environmental site assessments, underground storage
tanks, sustainable redevelopment, legal liabilities, public/private
resources, among many others.  A draft course agenda and course brochure
are attached.

The course fee is $395 per participant, which includes a continental
breakfast and lunch.  Limited need based scholarships are available.
Registration is now open and available on-line at:


Lodging for the course is available at the Q Hotel and Spa, Kansas
City's only "green" hotel, located at 560 Westport Road, Kansas City, MO
64111.  Phone number 800-942-4233.  A $98/night, single room, nonsmoking
rate is being made available for participants.  Please reference the
