California Land Recycling Conference 2020
Register Today — California Land Recycling Conference Returns Virtually in September
The California Land Recycling Conference 2020 (CALRC 2020) is an invaluable virtual gathering that brings together leaders who are working to build community resilience through brownfield remediation and land recycling. Using a mixed media approach of recorded speakers, live panel discussions, and customized breakout sessions, the conference is focused on the most relevant topics in funding, housing, regulatory frameworks, and technical guidance to help our region spark economic recovery through strategic land reuse.
The CALRC 2020 will be relevant and thought-provoking. Our goal is to go far beyond a series of technical webinars and to cultivate excitement and innovation of thought among attendees. The virtual format attracts a larger audience than an in-person conference, reaching every corner of the state, and the digital library and networking platform provide continued learning and collaboration opportunities beyond the conference. We believe the format and content will break through the digital noise we are all experiencing during shelter-in-place and support momentum in brownfields and land reuse work.
The sessions will be timely and contextual. What does land reuse mean in the time of COVID-19? What funding mechanisms work in the emerging economy? How does the housing crisis interact with surging community needs? What solution-driven projects have the best chance of success for recovery and resilient communities?
Housing: Sheltering Places & Housing for All – Housing leaders & economists on the financial impact of the housing crisis, pandemic and role of underutilized land in recovery
Funding: Is the Cascade Coming?– The CARES Act, HEROES Act, and California’s Contribution
Regulatory Framework: What the AF? – New Vapor Intrusion Guidance and brownfields; Discussion of DTSC’s California-based Attenuation Factor (AF) for Vapor Intrusion sites
Technical Guidance: Putting it all together – Decommissioning, Decontamination, Demolition
