Brownfields Half Day Seminar on February 26, 2019

What do the Madison Brass Works building, the Madison Novation Campus, and the Delton Family Medical Center in Lake Delton have in common?

They’re all developments on former brownfield sites. Brownfields – defined as properties where real or perceived contamination complicates development or reuse – may be developed, but require an additional level of planning and consideration.

The Southcentral chapter is hosting a half-day seminar on working on brownfields in Madison on Tuesday, February 26. Come learn from experts in the field about resources and examples related to development on brownfield sites. This program will include:

· An update from Mark Thimke (Foley & Lardner) from the Brownfields Study Group, a longstanding group of brownfields experts whose recommendations shape related policy;

· An overview of online resources for potential brownfields projects from Lisa Ashenbrenner Hunt and Sonya Rowe (Wisconsin DNR);

· Vapor intrusion updates from Alyssa Sellwood of TRC;

· An overview of funding sources for brownfields projects from Jason Scott (WEDC); and

· Case studies of real-world brownfields development project from Tony Kollasch (SCS) and representatives of the Village of Waunakee and Ayres Associates.

This program will take place in the training center at Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District, 1610 Moorland Road, Madison, WI.
