Tuesday, June 26
Resources For Economic Revitalization Workshop - 6/26-27 - Lewistown, MT
9:30 AM
Public Library Meeting Room
Hello, Community Leaders, Planners, and Economic Development Stakeholders!

I wanted to let you all know about a brownfields workshop being co-hosted by the Snowy Mountain Development Corporation, the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), and the Technical Assistance to Brownfields Program (TAB) at Kansas State University.

Have a Redevelopment Project? Want to Showcase Your Site to a Panel of Experts? Submit Your Site Today!!!

TAB is asking you to submit a site description application form for review prior to the workshop. This will be used to brief our panel on your site specific issues which may be impeding redevelopment. Please fill in the form as completely as possible, although it is not necessary to complete every section if the information is not known or unavailable.

Attendees will be assigned a specific time to present to the panel and plenty of time will be allowed for addressing site-specific issues and strategies. Please include pictures in your presentation as that will help the panel understand better. The panel will consist of MDEQ staff, a national brownfield developer, and others versed in community redevelopment strategies. The end result from the panel will be a comprehensive strategy for redevelopment tailored to your community needs.

June 26 - First Day Topics: "Expert Strategies for Redevelopment" 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM Mountain

TAB will give a brief overview of the brownfield process and MDEQ will update the audience on Montana brownfields topics. This will be followed by the attendees' presentations (about 30 minutes each) on their specific site(s) to a panel of experts. The day will conclude with a visit to two local brownfields.

June 27 - Second Day Topics: "TBD" 8:00 AM - 12:00 Noon Mountain

Based on demand, we are reserving time to continue with additional presentations from other Montana communities, a Question & Answer session will conclude the workshop. Registration-Important, Please Read!
