MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Reclaim, Restore, Revitalize West Virginia. That’s the theme for the 11th annual West Virginia Brownfields Conference. The event, hosted by the West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Centers, will take place September 7 at the Marriott Town Center in Charleston.

The conference features exceptional educational programs covering all aspects of brownfields redevelopment including: deal structuring and financing, abandoned and dilapidated buildings, grant writing, media engagement, remediation training for Licensed Remediation Specialists, community action on brownfields, and much more. New this year, the event will include pre-conference mobile workshops showcasing brownfields projects in the Kanawha Valley.

“We are very excited for this year’s conference, and we are particularly excited about the pre-conference workshops,” said Patrick Kirby, director of the Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center at West Virginia University. “The opportunity to showcase the amazing work being done by communities in Southern West Virginia is something we couldn’t pass up. The revitalization of brownfield properties is instrumental in our state’s future economic development.”

This premier redevelopment event attracts over 200 stakeholders including regional EPA officials, economic development professionals, real estate developers, lawyers, state and local officials, environmental professionals, entrepreneurs, planners, bankers, investors, and community redevelopment professionals. More details including registration and exhibitor information coming soon. Subscribe to our mailing list to receive the latest Conference details, or visit www.wvbrownfields.org.
