MEREDA to Host Breakfast Seminar on Environmental Challenges Associated with Historic Redevelopment Projects

Release Date: 

Join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) for breakfast on December 6th from 7:30 - 9:00 AM at the Portland Regency Hotel, 20 Milk Street, Portland to learn about the environmental challenges associated with historic redevelopment projects.

Program: 8:00- 9:00 AM Buffet Breakfast: 7:30 - 8:00 AM

About the Event: Maine's State Historic Preservation Tax Credit has focused many development projects on the historic buildings in Maine, many of which were otherwise neglected, vacant and underutilized. However, these older buildings contain environmental challenges that need to be addressed as part of the redevelopment including contaminated soil, asbestos, lead paint and PCBs in building materials.

Join us on December 6th at Portland Regency Hotel to learn more about how to identify these environmental challenges, how to obtain protections from these environmental liabilities, and how to utilize the state and federal grant/loan programs that are available to address these liabilities. The seminar will rely on case examples from recent projects completed in Maine and provide discussions from a developer, engineer and regulator's perspective.
