Rural areas, declining small towns, and isolated neighborhoods within cities can all be challenging places to launch a redevelopment project. Due to stagnating economic conditions, the risk of investing in a redevelopment project can be very high. And yet, these neighborhoods are often the ones that need an economic boost or property facelift the most. Are rural areas, small towns, and isolated neighborhoods destined to decay, or to wait until the market changes (which may never happen)? In such situations, thinkers like E.F. Schumacher, (Small is Beautiful) encourage us to avoid common best practices for land reuse and to think smaller and more locally to build the necessary momentum for revitalization. Using a suite of techniques known as "New Economy" strategies, developers can begin to think differently about how to mitigate the risks associated with projects in areas that are otherwise unlikely to be developed. With only a few small changes to how we think about land reuse in rural areas, it is possible to generate organic momentum around traditional and non-traditional projects. The webinar will feature examples and brief case studies from the field, as well as a Q&A session following the presentation. For those who can’t attend the live session, we’ll provide a recording.

Opportunity Zones provide a critical economic tool to cities interested in brownfields redevelopment. Join local government leaders nationwide on a webinar describing how communities can take advantage of the new tax law to spur economic investment in low-income communities. The bill includes a provision that enables governors to designate “Opportunity Zones” where investors will receive tax benefits in exchange for private investment in vulnerable and underserved areas. The new tax incentive will help communities attract developers and financial capital to corridors impacted with contaminated properties.
