With the recent reactivation of the Dickinson County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority and the creation of the Dickinson County Land Bank Authority, the time is right to learn more about how these tools assist communities and developers in creating new investment opportunities.

Attendees will hear about “Forming a Land Bank — from Start up to Success,” “Brownfield Basics,” “The State’s Role and Incentives for Brownfields,” and “Leveraging Land Bank and Brownfield Tools.”

Pre- registration is required. Lunch is included and the event is free.
