How do we work together to build a better, stronger Virgin Islands? Dr. Clanicia Pelle from the VI Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) and Schenine Mitchell from the U.S. EPA grapple with this question on a daily basis. Ahead of the *It Takes a Village: Working Together for Revitalization Summit, organized by the U.S. EPA, Center for Creative Land Recycling, and VI DPNR, I took some time to speak with these experienced practitioners to learn more about the VI’s unique redevelopment challenges, the strides they’ve made thus far, and what’s next in land reuse and community development.
*Due to the developing health crisis, this event has been postponed. A replacement date is being considered.
