St. Louis Regional Brownfields Marketplace

Next week, you have the opportunity to learn about exciting development opportunities around the St. Louis area, where resource providers, investors, developers and landowners will be meeting to promote the redevelopment of "brownfield" sites.

The "St. Louis Regional Browfields Marketplace" will be held on the campus of the University of Missouri - St. Louis, from 7:30 AM till noon on Tuesday, January 9. The event is free and open to the public.

"Brownfields" are those sites possessing some physical characteristic making their reuse more challenging. Brownfields are frequently found in older areas and might include the presence of asbestos, underground fuel storage tanks, lead paint, or some other condition making them more expensive to develop.

To help offset the higher cost of redevelopment, special programs are in place to assist in making these sites more financially feasible for reuse. Information about brownfield sites and the programs available to assist in returning them to productive use will all be found at this informational event.
