AEP Talk: The Future of Redevelopment in California

From AEP:

Since the dissolution of the redevelopment agencies in California, environmental planners have wondered what the future of Brownfield and infill development may be. For our November event, we’ll have the opportunity to hear from three local redevelopment leaders as they discuss how redevelopment projects have changed since the dissolution of the redevelopment agencies, how this might continue to evolve in the coming year, and how this impacts the CEQA/Environmental Planning process. Time will be available for questions after the panel discussion.
