Wackerman to address “Brownfields 2017”
Pittsburgh, PA, November 22, 2017: ASTIs President & Director of Brownfield Redevelopment, Tom Wackerman, has been selected to address Brownfields 2017 that convenes December 5-7, 2017 in Pittsburgh, PA. Wackerman speaks both locally and internationally on bringing seemingly disparate groups in the public and private sector together to obtain tax credits, TIF, grants and loans to redevelop community eyesores (gas stations, dry cleaners, mines, industrial property and blighted and obsolete buildings) that raises taxable value, and creates jobs. 2017 marks the third time he has been selected to address this particular audience.
