Testimonials from Previous Brownfield Listings Event Attendees

Brownfield Listings Event participants find tremendous value in attending, learning and participating in uniquely high caliber, action-oriented events.

Emily Fultz

City of Columbia, IL

”Attending the conference left me with a much better understanding of not only wide-ranging scope of solar projects, but the incentives available for financing such projects. I listed the City's RFQ on Brownfield Listings and received a great response from developers across the country. Had it not been for the networking and education provided at the conference, the City would be far behind in the race to develop solar on brownfields in Illinois."

Bob Ellis

Fulton County, IL

"Our experience at the conference was invaluable; especially helping Fulton County better understanding Brightfield development."

Scott Tess

City of Urbana, IL

"The event was a great opportunity to inform our procurement process and meet relevant developers eager to respond to our procurement offering."

 

Tom Barrasso

City of Amesbury, MA

"Thank you for the exposure at the conference. We had an excellent response (Amesbury's solar on landfill project) RFP achieved the highest amount of interest (of any project) in Amesbury history. And I've had a lot a positive feedback from the event."

 

Lisa Wogan

Economic Alliance of Kankakee County

"As a community and economic developer, I'm always on the lookout for the latest and greatest ways to build prosperity locally. Brownfield Listings' Chicago Opportunity Zone Boot Camp added so much value to the standard OZ discussion. Expert content with so many actionable takeaways that I couldn't wait to call my colleagues to talk about our next projects."
