Brownfield Redevelopment & Community Revitalization Summit: Albany, NY

This premier 2017 Summit is an important crash course on remediation and revitalization and offers an intimate networking reception to forge new connections. 


In light of funding and regulatory uncertainty in Washington, municipalities, redevelopment professionals, communities, government agencies and elected officials will have the opportunity to hear about what's happening in New York State and get actionable information to redevelop underutilized and contaminated properties for the health and prosperity of local economies.


  • Learn about sources of funding, incentives and tax credits 
  • Gain insights into redevelopment trends & state budget priorities 
  • Get workable ideas to jump start your toughest sites
  • Integrate resiliency, adaptation and climate mitigation strategies to reduce climate impacts 
  • Participate in our first-ever Redevelopment Rodeo to move three competitively selected projects--Syracuse, Canajoharie, and Rome--toward a redeveloped future with a "community of practice" expert and audience support.
