Janesville, Wisconsin's downtown riverfront and adjoining neighborhoods are severely affected by brownfields and their health impacts. This project advanced strategic thinking and community engagement toward realizing the potential for the 240 acre Rock Renaissance Area and six high priority redevelopment sites. The Rock Renaissance Area Redevelopment and Implementation Strategy is known as ARISE. This project won a 2015 Merit Award for Analysis and Planning from the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The planning effort interpreted existing site environmental information, incorporated community planning efforts for the downtown, and assessed current market opportunities to maximize green and healthy design, facilitate future private development, improve river access, and spur job creation. The resulting draft plan will be a vision and implementation strategy for the Rock Renaissance Area, including improved connectivity, cohesive land use patterns, enhanced public space, and redevelopment recommendations and implementation strategies for the six key redevelopment sites. Funding has been granted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Program.

Mo Nishiyama http://lanyrd.com/2015/writethedocs/sdmwxd/ As documentarians, we are rarely afforded an opportunity to thrive in a pristine greenfield environment. Sometimes we are asked to resurrect an existing documentation system which had fallen into a derelict state over many years. To turn this ship around, we must shepherd contents, customer base, and internal Subject Matter Experts into a future state where outdated, neglected, and ambiguous support documents are transformed into timely, relevant, and pleasing works of art. The role of the documentarian is to help execute this transformation. However, we are often asked (or voluntold) by our organizations to wear other hats beyond our primary writing duties: repair and build relationships, analyze business processes, learn about how others react to change, discover unknown troves of documentation, train and encourage the next generation of writers, gather and crunch data, tell stories, design workflows, and perform “other duties as needed.” Some may respond with an exasperated “I wasn’t trained on this!!!” or “That’s not part of my job!” But those of us who embrace the opportunity to stretch beyond our areas of expertise and learn new peripheral skills may realize that working on a documentation equivalent of a cleaning up Superfund site can turn into super fun. In this talk, I will share my experiences and lessons learned as a technical writer who is witnessing this documentation culture change, one conversation at a time. Wearing many hats can be exhilarating and rewarding.

See current properties: http://www.waterburyct.org/content/9588/default.aspx ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT There are many positive developments in Waterbury CT these days. We are continuing to advance our economic development strategy with public and private investments that are producing solid returns. This is evidenced by many new businesses coming to Waterbury, creating hundreds of new jobs. The years 2014 and 2015, so far, have seen the establishment of 20 new businesses and 1,035 new jobs through the direct involvement of our Economic Development Team. And more than 15 businesses have expanded, creating an additional 100 jobs, and we already have several new companies accounting for 800 jobs that have committed with letters of intent for 2015. That’s nearly 2,000 new jobs. And there’s more. For the first time, small independent restaurants in the Waterbury area will have access to the highest quality and freshest foods that restaurateurs nationwide have been enjoying for years with the opening of Restaurant Depot. CarMax, the used-car giant, has chosen Waterbury as a location that fits into its current growth plan and has received first local approval needed to construct a facility. Additionally, one of the largest independent propane retailers in the Northeast – Paraco Gas – plans to expand into Waterbury. Why are these companies choosing Waterbury? Our City is strategically located at the junction of Interstate 84 and Route 8. We are just two hours from Boston, 90 minutes from New York City and a 30-minute commute to Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven and Danbury. We have a skilled workforce that combines an old-fashioned New England work ethic with state-of-the-art training in the latest technology. Among our new businesses are a good cross mix of manufacturing, retail, restaurant and professional enterprises, allowing for continued expansion and diversification within the City’s employment base. The retail sales strength of our City starts with a population that exceeds 110,000 and continues with the strong demographics of affluent neighboring communities that depend on our retail base for goods and services. One Waterbury success story is the Texas Roadhouse, a restaurant that opened last year on Reidville Drive. The typical wait for a table on a weekend night can be 45 minutes or longer because of this family establishment’s growing popularity. The Texas Roadhouse in Waterbury has fast become one of the top-performing stores in a nationwide chain of more than 400 restaurants. Another Waterbury highlight is the commitment from King Industries Inc., of Norwalk, Conn., to construct a state-of-the-art manufacturing complex that will provide an estimated 180 jobs and, upon completion, provide for up to 200 full-time manufacturing jobs. King Industries is building on 10 acres of a Brownfield industrial-use property the City acquired, remediated and sold to them at an extremely competitive price. King Industries is constructing an 80,000-square-foot industrial manufacturing complex – an investment of more than $50 million in Waterbury. Waterbury remains the state’s leader in Brownfields identification and redevelopment. And we recently learned the Workforce Investment Board’s Brownfield Job Training Program will be featured as a Case Study in a federal EPA publication on the Nova Dye and WIC projects for job placement. The publication will be released at the EPA’s Brownfield Conference in September 2015 in Chicago. In 2014, Waterbury was the recipient of the historic TIGER Grant. This $19 million project is a game-changer for our City in so many ways. With plans already underway to improve the Waterbury rail branch, this project will enhance mass transit in our City while highlighting the beauty and viability of our downtown. The TIGER Grant and the rollout of Waterbury NEXT will transform our City. Waterbury NEXT represents an almost $20 Million public-private investment in revitalizing our downtown. These projects are part of Governor Dannel Malloy’s overall commitment to investing in housing, jobs and economic development to revitalize cities and downtowns across the state. The bottom line, as Mayor Neil M. O’Leary often says, is that “Waterbury is open for business.”

All sides of the political divide agree there is a housing crisis in the UK, but also seem frustratingly short on answers. Campaigners from the Russell Brand-backed New Era Estate to free-market think-tanks assert the need for more housing, but house-building in the UK has slumped to the lowest levels since the early 1920s. Moreover, the Conservative manifesto pledge to sell off 1.3 million housing association properties under ‘right to buy’ – nominally using the cash to fund more homes – is expected to exacerbate the problem in the short term. Some call for rent controls in London to both curb the private rental sector and encourage house-building, but there is also a bigger question of where those homes should go. Some suggest we need a radical loosening up Britain’s notoriously restrictive Town and Country Planning Act 1947, most notably in the Green Belt surrounding London: the National Housing Federation argues that freeing up one per cent of such land could provide space for 300,000 new homes. Objections to this come both from influential voices who call for the development of brownfield sites rather than paving over the countryside and from those who question whether the market can be relied upon to provide sufficient accommodation. There are concerns that without an accompanying large-scale development of transport infrastructure, loosening Green Belt restrictions would only lead to the creation of unloved suburban banlieues at the expense of precious green space outside the cities. Is opposition to building on the Green Belt really just Nimbyism, or are there valid concerns that the policy is an ineffective quick fix to a bigger problem of demand? Do even moderate attempts to relax planning restrictions on new developments on both brownfield and Green Belt land alike threaten to cause chaos for humans and disaster for natural habitats? Are property developers and home-builders simply distracting themselves from more innovative solutions to the housing crisis, or a change in our attitudes to home ownership? Why has suburbanisation and city expansion, once heralded as the triumph of a modern city development, now become viewed with so much suspicion? Should the focus remain on providing the right kind of housing, or is the only solution to the current impasse to ‘build, build, build’? Speakers Dr Rupa Huq Labour MP for Ealing Central and Acton David Orr chief executive, National Housing Federation Karl Sharro architect; writer; Middle East commentator; co-author, Manifesto: Towards a New Humanism in Architecture Matt Thomson head of planning, Campaign to Protect Rural England Chair Jason Smith associate fellow, Institute of Ideas

Mathew Hussey, MSc., Director of Environmental Risks, OAMPS UK Ltd. This webinar will feature two presentations: In the first presentation, David Coll will cover the legacy of Asbestos in soils including the nature of asbestos, why it is found in soil, when exposure may be possible and the legislation surrounding asbestos. In the second presentation, Mathew Hussey will seek to explain what impact asbestos in soils may have on you and your business, from an insurance perspective. In areas of heavy industrialisation and in much of the post war building projects asbestos containing materials were used extensively. It is estimated that around 4 million domestic properties and 1 million commercial properties have asbestos containing materials in the UK. Asbestos can be found in soils from the natural breakdown of rocks but it is mainly from the widespread use of material that has been spread inadvertently, particularly before its health effects were well understood. This is therefore often the case at “brown field” sites. Poor demolition practices, burying or capping of waste on site and fly tipping of materials has spread asbestos throughout our environment. Ship yards and large commercial sites managed their construction and product waste in the most efficient manner possible way and often, prior to regulations this meant the material was disposed of at the site. Asbestos construction contamination is often found with a range of other contaminants from hydrocarbons to heavy metals and even alongside ecological issues such as Japanese knotweed. These makeshift dumps were used for any materials that needed to be cleared away for progress to take place. Typical background levels in soils are at present unknown as few studies have been performed. Similarly, the risk posed by such materials is also unknown as it is difficult to establish a link between fibres in soil and fibre release to air. The concentration of asbestos materials will vary from product to product and from site to site. The worst cases are often where loose insulation has been manufactured and has spilled into the site, but it can also be as a consequence of crushing up of asbestos cement materials to make bridle paths and the like. Despite legislation to prevent spread and exposure it is a matter of fact that there are numerous examples where the material has been dispersed far and wide and there has clearly been a failure of these control measures. Outdoor dilution factors and the nature of our weather tend to make high exposures unlikely. However, once we carry the material in from the outdoor space and dry it out we can start to expect small and persistent exposures to occur. This is a particular problem as the earlier the exposure in life then the greater the affect of health issues. Onset of an asbestos condition takes around 15 to 40 years so an exposure for an 80 year old gardener and a 2 year old toddler, although equally sad possibly mean at one end of the scale a life cut short in their teens! The legislation is there however to punish the perpetrators of any uncontrolled exposure and ignorance of the effects of contaminating the environment is not a defense. Most asbestos related interventions are due to lack of management and often will result in an improvement notice recommending that asbestos materials are identified and are then appropriately managed. Who will be held responsible for the exposures from soil is difficult to establish. It can be the originator of the contamination – if they still exist and the incident can be proven. It can also be the land owner who at the very least will be held responsible for managing the risk from their property. Finally it can also be the consultant who failed to identify the material or the contractor who has started to dig without proper investigation. Asbestos, because it is inert, is difficult to find when in localised hot spots. It doesn’t migrate through the soil so the grid method of site investigation can miss it even though every effort has been made to locate it. It can be deposited at a site during new builds from contaminated fill from other sites too, so what was not there at the start of a project can be found later on. It is important to note that the methods for determination of the asbestos content of a sample are somewhat empirical. Samples of typically 1 kg of material are examined by skilled analysts for suspected asbestos containing materials to be identified. Optical microscopy methods are then used for confirmation of identity, and following a specific process, the measurement of concentration both in such materials and in loose fibres is possible.

This webcast is currently available for viewing only and is NO LONGER APPLICABLE FOR AICP CM credits. Sponsored By: Urban Design and Preservation Division Description: An Ecodistrict strategy is an emerging planning process which incorporates environmental performance metrics to guide neighborhood growth with a social, environmental and economic priority. This panel session will present, in detail, two ecodistrict efforts: the Brewery Blocks in Portland, OR - a private sector driven redevelopment of a historic brewery district, and the SW Ecodistrict in Washington, DC - a federal agency driven redevelopment of a single use office district into a sustainable, mixed-use neighborhood. The Brewery Blocks will illustrate how private sector efforts on a sustainable adaptive reuse of multiple industrial properties laid the foundation for ecodistrict strategies. By contract, the SW Ecodistrict – A Vision Plan for a More Sustainable Future is the first public agency approved ecodistrict plan in the United States (accepted by the National Capital Planning Commission in January 2013). The SW Ecodistrict, which is currently a federal employment precinct south of the National Mall is being planned as a national model of mixed use sustainability with a goal of being net zero energy, as measured in carbon, by 2030. The presentation will highlight how goals for energy, waste and water reduction guided recommendations for preservation and rehabilitation, infill or redevelopment of mid-century modern buildings; how recommendations for energy and stormwater management guided the urban design of the public realm; and how urban design guidelines for building massing and height and the street network were developed within the context of the Monumental Core, adjacent Smithsonian institutions and the historic L’Enfant Plan. The presentation will also provide an overview of the EcoDistricts framework and Target Cities, a new two-year partnership with ten development projects across eight North American cities, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Cambridge, Denver, Los Angeles, Ottawa, Ontario and Washington, D.C. Target Cities is utilizing public-private-civic partnerships to accelerate district-scale community regeneration representing more than 1,300 acres of existing neighborhoods, downtown areas, business districts, historic precincts, neighborhoods rich in culture, brownfield sites, and university campuses.

SOUNDBITE: (English) William Brownfield, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs "The Andean Regional Initiative is not a counter-drug initiative. It is a strategy that has three elements to it. And since we are a very simple people we start them all with the letter 'D' -- Democracy, Development and Drugs. Counter drug obviously is a part, a very important part of the Andean Regional Initiative. But it is an attempt to integrate a coherent approach that covers all elements of the problems and threats affecting the Andean region, and indirectly the United States of America." 3. Mid view of map showing levels of Cocoa plant cultivation in for Colombia year 2000 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) William Brownfield, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs "We also acknowledged, and I believe to a certain extent we've taken some criticism for the speed....the pace with which spillover was proceeding from Colombia to other countries. I would argue that some of that criticism....I would argue that a lot of that criticism was exaggerated. Having said that, we do acknowledge that the Colombia threat, the Colombia cancer if you will, of drugs, and insurgencies, and paramilitaries, and economic problems that create trans-border movements of people and drugs and criminals and guerillas, is in fact a problem that we will continue to deal with in the years ahead." 5. Mid view of people at briefing. 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) R. Rand Beers, Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs "This last year for the first time in a number of years we began to see new growth in Peru in terms of cocoa cultivation. While the eradication effort there outstripped this new cocoa, it is a troubling feature of the drug environment there and we want to ensure that it does not become a significant factor." 7. Mid view of Beers 8. Mid view of briefing STORYLINE: U-S officials have unveiled a new funding plan to help Latin American nations fight the war on illegal narcotics and to give them economic aid. Known as the Andean Regional Initiative, it earmarks more than 880 (m) million U-S dollars for aid to seven countries in South America. The countries to be funded in the programme are Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela. U-S officials say the Andean initiative will provide additional U-S dollars for anti-narcotics programmes, along with development assistance for economic aid. The State Department also stressed that the programme seeks to balance anti-drug funding with other aid in an overall assistance package for the region. Less than half of the aid will be for Colombia and only half will be for law enforcement and security assistance. Officials also admit that the effort to combat what they call cross border spillover of illegal activities between Colombia and its neighbours will continue in the years ahead.

Newport's Riverfront Walk is complete after work to finish off the final link and make it fully accessible was carried out by Newport City Council. Connecting the east and west of the city centre, the pedestrian and cycle way runs along both sides of the River Usk from Town Bridge to City Bridge. Developers have taken responsibility for sections of the walk as their schemes have taken shape but, until recently, one part remained unfinished. It has now been completed by council contractors Alun Griffiths. Councillor Deb Davies, Newport City Council's cabinet member for streetscene and city services, said: "I am delighted the scheme, which was a long-term aspiration of the council, has now been completed. "It was initiated through the Active Travel programme, received a Welsh Government local transport grant and was led by the council's streetscene teams and Newport Norse. I would like to thank the Welsh Government for the funding and council staff for their successful work on the project. "The walk, which includes part of the Wales Coastal Path, features viewing platforms, benches and even special features such as the words from poet WH Davies. It is a very special place right in the heart of the city." Councillor John Richards, Newport City Council's cabinet member for regeneration and development, said: "The transformation of the Old Town Dock, which was once a derelict brownfield site, has been remarkable and it is fantastic that the riverfront path is now fully accessible. "As a keen cyclist, I regularly travel this route and I hope that many people will enjoy walking and cycling safely along the river especially now the better weather is here." In 2005 work began to clear and level the once derelict Old Town Dock as part of regeneration proposals for housing, offices and leisure including the walk and the park.

NORTH RIVERSIDE DEVELOPMENT PROJECT BRIEF : The redevelopment of the North Riverside area of the city center forms one of the priority projects within the Derby Cityscape Masterplan. The site forms part of this area and is bounded by St. Alkmund’s Way (inner ringroad), the River Derwent, Exeter Place and Darwin Place, a total area of 2.31 ha (5.7 acres). Currently the site is a surface car park (Darwin Place) and the river frontage land is occupied by a block of flats (Exeter House) which is to be demolished. The redevelopment of this area will seek to create a new city center destination and community offering new employment opportunities with the creation of a sustainable, high quality mixed use development on brownfield land which will fully exploit the riverside setting and which could include a mix of any of the following : Hotel / Leisure / Entertainment, Retail, Offices, Residential, Car parking, Public realm. The opportunity exists to create a safe environment with high quality public spaces fully optimizing the benefits of the riverside location and utilizing the proposed river footbridge which will create a link with the River-lights and the city beyond. Design: The North Riverside site presents the opportunity to become part of the existing vibrant waterfront pedestrian realm within the heart of the city and can promote new direct links to River-lights and River Gardens, Market Square and Osnabruck Square. The site frontage should respect the river frontage whilst promoting improved access and views of the river. The public realm should aspire to a world class design and artistic aspirations that fully promote the uses within the scheme. Overall the public spaces should form a mix of hard and soft landscaping to promote new gathering and forecourt spaces generating a holistic riverside ambiance within the scheme. Green City Strategic Aim and objectives - Build a worth atmosphere, Use materials that remind us of nature, Challenge our concepts of sustainability, Enhance our understanding of the natural world, Give us reasons to be proud of, Save and generate energy, enhanced with the use of green walling etc.

SCHENECTADY -- Questions had been swirling in the Capital Region after the Gaming Facility Location Board announced its decisions. Friday, some of those questions were answered. The Gaming Facility Location Board released a report Friday explaining its decisions, laying out what it liked and didn't about each plan. In Schenectady, the Board said it especially liked how the Rivers project will replace a brownfield site saying, "Another compelling aspect of the Rivers project is that it supports revitalization of the City of Schenectady by replacing one of the country's oldest brownfield sites." The Board also said that, "the Rivers facility, as part of a broader, integrated economic development plan, would have a wider economic development impact than the Hard Rock proposal." "It's just everything you could ask for along a beautiful riverfront," said Schenectady City Councilwoman Leesa Perazzo. "We're talking about all levels of jobs." In Rensselaer, the Board said it liked the Hard Rock plan but also had some concerns. "Among the Board's concerns is that Hard Rock would not have been an equity investor in the project, but merely a franchisor licensing its name," the report said. And the Board said in the report that Schenectady County had higher levels of poverty and below average home prices, than Rensselaer County and the State. "I think all of Upstate New York is in need of an economic boost," said Rensselaer County Executive Kathy Jimino. The County Executive said the casino wasn't the only potential boost for her county, pointing to higher education, and business efforts there. She also feels this process has drawn attention to Rensselaer's riverfront. "I think the attention it's gotten will bring additional opportunity to the City of Rensselaer," said Jimino.

Riverfront Park fulfills a decades-long movement to reclaim the Passaic riverfront for the people of Newark, New Jersey. Situated on the site of a former metal smelting plant, the park is becoming an integral part of the community’s identity and activity, hosting events and festivals and giving thousands of people a place to walk, bike, relax, and play. An inclusive design process guided decision-making throughout development. The park is expected to attract economic development, particularly to downtown Newark. EPA created the National Award for Smart Growth Achievement in 2002 to recognize exceptional approaches to development that protect the environment, encourage economic vitality, and enhance quality of life. In the past 13 years, 62 winners from 26 states have shown a variety of approaches that states, regions, cities, suburbs, and rural communities can use to create economically strong, environmentally responsible development. EPA's Office of Sustainable Communities manages the awards program.

"People told me nothing good comes out of our neighbourhood,But it all depends on your lens" said Dave Tims at TEDxManukau. Creating a space for people gives them a voice. It was this desire to give voice to his local community which saw him become an active member of the Randwick Park Residents’ Association, which has since redesigned a local reserve and constructed a new skate park, with the input of locals. Dave Tims lives in Randwick Park, Manurewa with his wife Denise and 4 children. He has more than 20 years of experience working with people and communities, helping them discover and realise their full potential. Dave works in the same neighbourhood he lives in and he applies a Community-lead Development model to his work, that includes leadership development, employment opportunities, youth work training, partnerships and developing locally run trusts. Since moving to Randwick Park some 5 years ago Dave has become an active member of the Randwick Park Residents Association. The Association, working in partnership with the Manurewa Local Board, has successfully overseen the redevelopment of Riverton Reserve, which has included upgrading the sports fields and the construction of a new skate park. Future plans include the construction of a community centre and the establishment of an early childcare centre. Dave is a trained Counsellor, an ex-Primary School Teacher, a Baptist minister an This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s (KVCC) need for expanded course offerings has transformed into a plan to help make Kalamazoo more connected, well–rounded, and healthy. KVCC’s vision creates a new campus focused on food sustainability and wellness along with an innovative educational mix of health care and culinary programs. KVCC has partnered with Bronson Healthcare and Kalamazoo Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (KCMHSAS) to plan its campus in Downtown Kalamazoo. Bronson Healthcare donated 13.3 acres of land east of its hospital as part of the project. Some of the property tested positive for environmental contamination, which can be a major roadblock in redeveloping urban areas. However, through a partnership with the City of Kalamazoo and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, KVCC was awarded $945,000 in Brownfield money to help redevelop the site and revitalize contaminated and blighted areas of the property.

EPA's Clean Power Plan would require existing power plants to cut their greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a cleaner supply of energy. The EPA has previously estimated that the plan would create 120,000 jobs by 2020 but lead to 24,000 job loses as plants move away from fossil fuel energy sources.
