On August 2nd, the Center for Creative Land Recycling, in partnership with Tuskegee University and U.S. EPA, held a workshop focused on rural brownfield redevelopment to help drive the establishment of a rural transit system.
The workshop provided a site development tool/resource for rural brownfields redevelopment and best practices for communities located along the Selma-Montgomery Trail. Workshop attendees learned to apply the site development tool, as well as identify next steps and establish goals for each site with a toolkit (PDFs can be downloaded below).
