Bangor-Area Breakfast Seminar: Stormwater Tips To Maximize Credits And Minimize Risk!
 
The Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) is hosting an informational breakfast event focusing on Stormwater Tips to Maximize Credits and Minimize Risk on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 from 7:30 - 9:00 AM at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor. 

ABOUT THE EVENT: 

Take action now to reduce costs and avoid potential for regulatory action. Pressure from Federal and State regulators, on both public and private entities, as well as a desire for a healthy environment, are causing the City of Bangor to devote an increasing amount of time and resources to stormwater. The business community will be most affected if regulatory action is taken, as it was in South Portland, but the City is working hard to avoid a confrontation.

This seminar will explain why business owners should not wait to take action to reduce costs and avoid potential for regulatory action. Examples for how to take action now will also be presented.

Presentation objectives:

- Provide a brief background on stormwater regulatory pressures & the need for stormwater funding

- Provide an update on the status of the City of Bangor's Prospective Stormwater Utility

- Provide the audience with some insight as to how it will affect them financially if the utility is or is not implemented, and

- Offer examples of what can be done to minimize the costs to businesses or organizations  

Join us on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 for this important discussion from 7:30 - 9:00 AM at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor.
