Partnerships Powering Redevelopment: The Oakley Story--from Cul-de-Sac to Regional Hub
Rebuilding America Webinar #2
This is an evolving story of how a small town in California banded together with an industrial owner of a former manufacturing site and a developer to create a dynamic new job center. Working together, they overcame legacy environmental impacts, a bottleneck of transportation infrastructure, and lack of jobs for the growing middle-class population. Hear from the mayor, the developer, and the former owner of the site on how they achieved success and continue to build for the future!
The webinar continues with the story of a city at an earlier stage in the redevelopment process. Huntington, West Virginia is undergoing an initiative to transform a vacant manufacturing site and adjacent brownfields into an innovation zone. Matt Ward will discuss how the Huntington Brownfields Innovation Zone (H-BIZ) is reshaping this area to include a technology- and knowledge-sector commercial development, baseball stadium, mixed-use redevelopment, public spaces, and green infrastructure.
