Chris Clark

We welcome the 2019 Brownfield Seminar’s Keynote Speaker:

Chris Clark, President/CEO at Georgia Chamber of Commerce

The redevelopment and reuse of properties play a large role in Georgia’s future. Hear how Georgia’s economic growth potential, how we continue to attract business, and how land use patterns across the State have played role in the way we do business.


Sessions include:

PFAS Risk and Impact on Continuing Obligations: An informative discussion about how PFAS can impact Brownfield sites in various stages of development, from environmental site assessments to risk assessments to continuing obligations.
Environmental Justice and Community Engagement: A case study from Savannah, GA that shows how brownfield redevelopment provides an important framework to revitalize overburdened and underserved communities – transforming contaminated properties into end uses that promote environmental, economic, and health vitality.
Brownfield Remediation and Risk Considerations: Case studies that illustrate approaches to Brownfield site remediation, and a discussion about identifying and managing risk at remediation sites associated with climate change.
Regulatory Approaches: A panel discussion about benefits to brownfield sites offered by state and federal regulatory programs, as well as benefits that can be realized under the recently adopted risk assessment framework by the GA EPD. Speakers will also share information about the 2017 Federal Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and Local Development (BUILD) Act provisions, practical implications, and potential incentives.
Evolving Beyond a Traditional Remediation Approach: A conversation about approaches for reducing inherent risk associated with environmental, zoning, timing, financial, and repositioning uncertainties. Several case studies will be discussed, including a remediation project in Buckhead, GA that allowed for redevelopment into the Top Golf recreational facility.
Due Diligence Funding Can Spark Redevelopment: A discussion about EPA’s Targeted Brownfield Assessment (TBA) program and how it is implemented to support land redevelopment. An in-depth case study will highlight how this funding can provide the assessment needed to spark property transfer and ultimately lead to brownfield redevelopment and job creation.
Mayors Panel: A panel of mayors, who will discuss their views and experiences with brownfield redevelopment in their local communities.
Regulatory Update: A regulatory, policy, and legislative update on the Georgia environmental programs that affect redevelopment.
