The Sixth Annual Northwest Florida Brownfields Redevelopment Forum was held Thursday, June 14 at Jackson County Agriculture Center. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Northwest District, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and West Florida and Apalachee Regional Planning Councils invite local governments, investors, developers, and other interested parties to learn about Florida’s Brownfields Redevelopment Program.

The Brownfields program facilitates redevelopment and job creation by empowering communities, local governments, and other stakeholders to work together to assess, clean up and reuse properties that may have been previously impacted by pollutants.
