The Mohawk Valley Brownfield Development Summit, created by a unique collaboration of the six Mohawk Valley Counties and the Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, will take place October 6th and 7th, 2021 in Johnstown, NY. The Summit will provide developers a dynamic in-person opportunity to learn, network, and invest in New York’s Mohawk Valley Brownfield redevelopment. According to Stephen Smith, Executive Director of the Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, “The Summit will tie in the Mohawk Valley’s economic leaders, the brownfield sites ready for restoration, and America’s brownfield developers looking to acquire sites for future economic growth.”
Keynote speaker Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer will spotlight why investment in the Mohawk Valley has never looked brighter. With a $2 billion investment forecast, businesses are looking to invest. Federal and state investments in semiconductors and the innovation economy are closely aligned with investments in the Marcy Nanocenter, Cree/Wolfspeed, Danfoss Silicon Power, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and the Innovare Advancement Center underway. The surge of economic activity is putting more focus on preparing sites for industrial, commercial residential, and infill development. Seasoned experts from the public and private sectors will address redevelopment including, the Valley’s needs, redevelopment opportunities, leveraging, incentives, and why businesses are investing in the Valley. The Summit will showcase prioritized sites for redevelopment on a dedicated and interactive website.
