Brownfield and Land Bank Training

In March 2020, the Alliance co-hosted a training session for interested parties to learn more about site redevelopment and how Brownfield and Land Bank tools can assist.

 

The speakers and the topics covered include:

  • Forming a Land Bank from Start up to Success – Presentation

Anne Giroux, Marquette County Land Bank Authority

 

Jeff Hawkins, Envirologic Consulting Services

 

  • The State’s Role and Incentives for Brownfields – Presentation

Jen Tucker/Vicki Schwab/Christopher Germain, Michigan Economic Development Corporation

 

Jim Tischler, Michigan State Land Bank Authority

The presentations shared during the session are posted here as a resource for any interested parties.  Each presentation contains contact information for the speakers should you want to reach out with any follow up questions.  If you have a redevelopment project in mind, please contact Lois Ellis at lois.ellis@daeda.org for assistance in determining project eligibility for program assistance.
