I attended the 15th Annual Smart Growth Conference February 11, 12 and 13, 2016 in Portland, Oregon.  I was amongst a five panel distinguished guest list which included Blasé Leven, TAB Program Coordinator-Kansas State University, Ignacio Dayrit-Program Director for the Center for Creative Land Recycling, Oakland, California, Elizabeth Limbrick-Project Manager, New Jersey Institute of Technology and Moderator Sarah Sieloff, Executive Director for the Center for Creative Land Recycling , Oakland, California. We all partnered to show stakeholders how beneficial the BIT – Brownfields Inventory Tool is. The record keeping, efficiency and just how user friendly the system is. We wanted to reach out to local government, stakeholders and other regions for implementation. As a whole, the speakers do work in all ten EPA Regions, in addition to my and Blase’s work here in EPA Region 7. I met Blasé in 2011 and he introduced me to this tool.  To date, I have 49 Brownfield sites entered, from basic inventory to current and completed sites with new homes on them.  I am thankful to K-State and the Smart Growth Committee for giving me this opportunity and to put the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska on the US Map showing amazing work in Indian Country.  It was a great honor and I am thankful for my work here on the reservation. I would like to say a “special thank you” to Ms. Alicia Brown, Project Coordinator from the Local Government Commission out of Sacramento, California who made all my training and traveling arrangements.
