Why stop with one brownfield site when you can redevelop several? Areawide planning is a strategy that communities across the country have successfully used to address multiple brownfields concurrently -- and not always in the context of an EPA Brownfields Areawide Planning Grant. In this webinar, learn how areawide planning can support your redevelopment goals: see how each community navigated the planning process, engaged residents and other stakeholders, and utilized creative approaches to funding and interim uses to turn local eyesores into assets.

Improving environmental and human health outcomes in communities across the country is challenging under any circumstances. In the early part of the 21st Century this is particularly true given the economic, political, and social changes occurring. EPA’s Office of Community Revitalization has developed strategies and programs that assist communities’ efforts to take stock of their assets, identify visions for growth that supports a better environment and healthy living. Through this webinar you’ll hear how EPA collaborates with communities to grow their economies and improve the environment.
