The City of Paducah is holding a virtual Redevelopment Lunch & Learn on February 1 at noon. This online session will provide information about Paducah’s Brownfield Program. Join developers, real estate professionals, and community leaders who want to learn more about the development opportunities a brownfield program offers. During this hour, attendees will learn about funding for redevelopment projects, getting a project prioritized, alleviating environmental concerns, and networking with other stakeholders.
The City of Paducah received a $500,000 EPA Assessment Grant in May 2022. The goal of this funding is to implement strategies to assess, remediate, and forward the development of commercial real estate.
