About the Event:

Make your Deal Work – Avoid Environmental Pitfalls and Delays
After several decades of living with environmental liabilities, most developers and brokers understand the road map through environmental issues, and the value of an environmental site assessment.  But what are the new and developing issues and how can you avoid them?  What useful tools and steps are now available in 2014 to keep the deal on track?  And is the DEP really here to help?

Join MEREDA for breakfast on November 13, 2014 from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at DoubleTree by Hilton in South Portland as our panelists focus on practical problem-solving strategies to keep deals on track and resolve environmental issues.  And the DEP VRAP is here to help – really.
