Washington State Brownfields Conference

Join us for the Washington Brownfields Conference in Spokane this coming May. Cleaning up and redeveloping brownfields is key to local economic development efforts, turning perceived problems into community assets, such as affordable housing. The goal of this conference is to bring together public and private sector stakeholders in Washington and the Inland Northwest to share information on brownfields redevelopment successes and future opportunities.

Wednesday, May 29, 12 – 5 p.m.
Thursday, May 30, 2019 , 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
