Brownfields are defined as "real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant." These properties can blight neighborhoods, create urban sprawl and leave properties abaonded for decades. The purpose of this conference and the Missouri Brownfields Program is to help redevelop properties for the purpose of economic improvement and job creation. The Missouri Brownfields Conference will cover brownfield redevelopment including a basic course on identifying brownfields in your community and identifying resources for assessing, remediating and redeveloping brownfield properties.
The department is offering scholarships for attendance to the conference for employees or representatives of not-for-profit entities, municipalities, counties, regional planning commissions, economic development entities and other government entities with an interest in redevelopment.
