The state recently allocated $500 million for brownfields and underutilized properties! These new programs will be operational in 2021 through the Ohio Department of Development.
Please join us to hear about what we know, what we don’t know, and what we think might happen with the new funding program that is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2021. This discussion will be led by Aaron Clapper with the Greater Ohio Policy Center and Jenny Carter-Cornell with Hull. Municipal economic development leader, Shannon Meadows, and attorney and developer, Todd Davis, will share their perspectives on how best to approach projects based on their prior brownfields fund implementation and redevelopment experience. Diana Rife from JobsOhio and Annie van Blaricom with ODOD will discuss some of the existing brownfields funding programs in the state. Hull's Craig Kasper will be our program host, will share lessons learned from his 30+ years in the industry, and will engage participants in an entertaining live polling session.
