Go beyond the theory of Brownfields and learn which programs and tools exist to change the perception of brownfields from constraints to opportunities and start improving Bay Area brownfields today! This workshop is an introduction to brownfields, funding, programs, and policies. The topic is brownfield infill development and the presentation will cover introductions to key players, financing options, and tools for redeveloping Bay Area brownfields. This discussion will focus on the South Bay and include a case study of remediation and adaptive reuse by Silverado Contractor Inc on Plant 51 in San Jose.
