PRESENTATIONS

GBA has once again assembled a strong lineup of presentations and panel discussions, as well as state economic development and legislative updates, including the following (with more to be announced):
Community Engagement and Environmental Justice: While often overlooked, the success of a Brownfield redevelopment project requires a collaborative and strategic approach to address the broader community concerns and Environmental Justice considerations. Various legal, real estate, and regulator perspectives will be presented by an interactive panel discussion covering available funding, permitting, potential legal liabilities and consensus building.
Economic Development:
Pullman Yard Redevelopment – Linking the Past to the Future of Georgia: The redevelopment of this property in the historic Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta is the vision of Atomic Entertainment and will bring a Work, Live, Play development to accommodate a growing film industry. With a rich history of transportation and industrial use, this property of approximately 26.84 acres has been entered into the Georgia Brownfields Program.
Rails-to-Trails – Reuse of Underutilized Properties: Presenters will share Case Studies of abandoned rail lines being given a new purpose will demonstrate beneficial reuse.
Continuing Environmental Obligations: Lurking Pitfalls for “Innocent Purchasers” will be discussed by a panel from a legal, environmental, and real estate development approach. These obligations will be considered from a pre-closing environmental diligence and a post-closing management plan to avoid or minimize risks.
Vapor Intrusion: Possible Reopening Risks and Sampling Methods Update: Could closed sites be subject to further testing due to emerging contaminants and create legal issues? Using hypothetical remediation site case studies, the interactive panel will examine how potential risks can be proactively managed. A review of Federal and State Guidelines and a successful High-Volume Sampling case study will also be presented.
