BCONE sponsors no- or low-cost networking events, roundtables, site tours, and educational seminars. The annual Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop is BCONE’s premiere annual program, at which BCONE partners with other organizations to explore issues related to the environment and sustainability.  BCONE’s Pro Bono Counseling Program, known as BRIGHT,  provides no-cost support to municipalities and project stakeholders to assist them through the maze of available financial and remedial brownfield programs within each state. The Pro Bono Program includes a team of brownfield practitioners visiting municipalities and project sites to provide no-cost support and education to facilitate redevelopment at brownfield projects.

The morning session will focus on providing a regulatory update on issues affecting redevelopment projects, an update on the LSRP program, an update on emerging contaminants (e.g., PFAS), and the impact proposed changes will have on brownfields projects. Funding incentives will be discussed, to include the Real Estate Impact Fund and HDSRF, as well as changes via SRRA 2.0. Technical updates will focus on alternative remediation standards and how the new cleanup standards will impact ongoing and emerging projects.
