Fifth Annual SWFL Regional Symposium - Economic Enrichment Through Redevelopment On June 7 and 8, the Department of Environmental Protection South District offered its Fifth Annual South Florida Regional Symposium, in Sebring. This year’s event focused on Economic Enrichment Through Redevelopment.
Representatives from local government and engineering and environmental consulting firms joined state and federal experts to learn more about the economic and environmental benefits of Florida’s Brownfields Redevelopment Program. The program empowers local communities and stakeholders by facilitating redevelopment and job creation by the assessment, clean up, and reuse of properties previously impacted by pollutants.
