Speakers:

  • Natalie Brown from Minnesota Brownfields,
  • Shanna Schmitt from the MPCA,
  • Janice Gundlach from the City of New Brighton, and

Our speakers will describe what brownfields are, the difficulties and opportunities that they provide, and how cities can use their brownfields in useful, sustainable projects.
