Brownfields Wyoming

Local leaders and developers are invited to a free workshop on May 15-16 at Fort Caspar Museum in Casper designed to teach communities how to secure funding to revitalize abandoned buildings and potentially contaminated sites.

The Brownfield Workshop is hosted by the city of Casper, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality and the Technical Assistance to Brownfields Program at Kansas State University.

The first day, which begins at 12:30 p.m., will teach participants what a brownfield is, learn how to integrate it with a local economic development strategy and discover the resources and partners available at the state and regional levels.

The day includes a walking tour of the Old Yellowstone District in Casper and a networking session and cocktail reception following the day's presentations.

The second day runs from 8 a.m. to noon and offers participants a chance to discuss their site with experts and learn about opportunity zones and other brownfields redevelopment strategies.

This class counts as eight hours of elective continuing education credits from the Wyoming Real Estate Commission for licensed Wyoming responsible brokers, associate brokers and salespersons.

There are a few travel scholarships available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please email Cindi Martinez at cindi.martinez@wyo.gov for eligibility and details.
