In partnership with New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and the City of Louisville, CCLR organized a half day workshop focusing on land reuse and recycling building better communities. Local residents met at the Louisville Urban League for presentations followed by a walking tour organized by Allison Smith, of Louisville Metro.
The morning session was led by CCLR on what impacts and opportunities brownfields present, while also explaining the EPA's Technicial Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) program. Louisville Metro talked about various projects happening in Louisville and what steps the City is taking to work with communities on these redevelopment projects. After lunch, there was abreakout session covering the various Tech Tools that communities can access online to track redevelopment efforts and impacts.
