FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville workshop on brownfield redevelopment is being offered for bankers and property development professionals.

The Feb. 24 event is sponsored by the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection and the Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

The workshop will be at the Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank.

The sponsors say the goal is to give participants a better understanding of brownfields and issues surrounding contaminated property redevelopment. Brownfields are properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to real or perceived environmental contamination.

Agenda topics include federal environmental liability and exemptions for lenders and prospective purchasers. The event will also focus on Kentucky’s new brownfield law and available incentives to assist in brownfield redevelopment.

Participation is free but registration is required by Feb. 19.
