Pizza and Politics: Navigating the New Federal Brownfield Landscape

A special members-only lunchtime discussion with one of the nation’s leading authorities on brownfield and community redevelopment/reuse strategies & financing. Charlie Bartsch has over 30 years of experience analyzing economic and community development policies. He joined us on July 24, 2017 to discuss the new federal brownfield funding landscape: what lies ahead, and how states and communities can and should adapt their community redevelopment financing strategies given the new normal.

Remembering Charlie Bartsch – Minnesota Brownfields is saddened by the loss of Charlie Bartsch, who passed away on January 17. The entire brownfields community will miss Charlie and his tireless passion and advocating spirit. Charlie’s knowledge and expertise of brownfields and funding mechanisms for redevelopment spurred many great projects and initiatives. The greatness of Charlie was that he was the same person to everyone he met and his engaging energy had a way of invigorating all that knew him.
