BY TAYLOR BENNETT, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT POLICY COORDINATOR, THE HUB
We talk a lot about abandoned, dilapidated, and vacant buildings here at The Hub, and one of the most important ways that we’re working to tackle this challenge is by connecting community leaders with the tools needed to address them.
Join us on Thursday, November 8th for the 2018 BAD Buildings Summit, where you’ll connect with community leaders who, like you, are taking on Brownfields, Abandoned, and Dilapidated (BAD) Buildings in their communities. You’ll also engage with resource providers, practitioners, and technical experts on topics such as preservation, demolition, codes and ordinances, funding, engaging stakeholders, and sustainable reuse options for vacant properties.
The Summit will be held in Charleston, WV at the Embassy Suites and will feature two tracks for participants to engage in: Standard Sessions and Specialized Sessions. Standard Sessions will cover basic and introductory topics like How to Build a BAD Buildings Team and Inventory Properties, while Specialized Sessions will cover certain topics intensively, such as site redevelopment and strategies for adaptive reuse.
If you’re taking on the challenge of abandoned, dilapidated, and vacant properties, come to the BAD Buildings Summit – connect with those who are working on similar issues, and gain technical skills you can use in your community.
