ULI Peer-to-Peer Workshop: "Brownfield Redevelopment 101" (3/10/10)
- ULI San Francisco Young Leaders Group is proud to announce:
"Brownfield Redevelopment 101: Financial & Technical Resources for Brownfield & Infill Developments"
Brownfields are 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. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties protects the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands.
This presentation provides an overview of the available financial mechanisms for funding brownfield redevelopment in California and describes several new and innovative programs. Many of the existing programs are in the form of loans, but there are also a number of grant programs. The presentation describes some of the basic terms for accessing funds, relevant contacts, and available resources, and will provide a helpful summary chart of brownfield funding resources. The presentation will also include case studies of actual brownfield and/or infill projects that have utilized these resources.
For this presentation, ULI San Francisco Young Leaders Group has teamed up with The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR or "see clear"), a nonprofit organization focused on creating sustainable and equitable communities by encouraging responsible patterns of land use and development. CCLR's mission is to reduce energy consumption and reverse global climate change by facilitating land recycling and brownfield redevelopment through training, technical assistance and funding for communities who are attempting to turn around vacant or environmentally distressed properties through creative private, public, and nonprofit partnerships

Peer to Peer Workshops are structured as small educational sessions with attendance capped to facilitate an interactive classroom-like experience. Unlike other courses, these workshops are taught from the perspective of someone who remembers `what it's like not to know', with the stated intention of helping fellow YLGers better understand different segments of the real estate industry so that they may further strengthen their understanding of how our dynamic business functions.
From Entitlements to Valuation, from Negotiating Leases to Public Speaking, we'll teach you everything from the `basics' to the `tricks of the trade' Peer to Peer Workshops will help their participants be better rounded real estate professionals resulting in enhanced professional knowledge and personal skills.
