Must-knows concerningVoluntary Remediation Program Application 3 20 03 Azdeq

you.hi good morning thank you so much for.joining us my name is Johanna Nelson and.I'm a finance development specialist.with the New Mexico Economic Development.Department and we host a monthly webinar.series that address financing topics and.points of interest about financing.within the state so today we're really.excited to address a really important.topic about brownfields so thanks for.joining us for the brownfields 101 and.we are joined today by Jennifer Muse.with the New Mexico Environment.Department as well as Joe solace who is.with the Economic Development Department.finance team and Karen with the.EPA so these are all experts in the.fields that have been working in New.Mexico and are here today to share their.knowledge with you about brownfield and.very general information and hopefully.you'll have the tools and the.information to follow up with them and.follow up with the resources to get the.information you need so just want to.clarify a few things this presentation.is being recorded so this will go on our.New Mexico Economic Development.departments YouTube page which you can.access after the presentation and as.well you can access all of our previous.webinars that we've had and it also will.be put in a PDF and we will email that.out today so if you have to jump off at.any point in the presentation feel free.to do so and we'll get you the.presentation link and the slides to you.today for you to access before we get.started I wanted to briefly go over the.finance development.services give you a little bit of.insight about what we do we provide a.variety of financial services for New.Mexican companies that are located here.we provide financial services and.programs for companies that that are.interested in locating to New Mexico and.we provide services for those startup.companies that that an entrepreneurs.that that are beginning and homegrown.and looking to start their business in.New Mexico so we do financial packaging.review a financial statements financial.analysis financial consultations we.provide tax incentive analysis so we can.look at a company and and provide a.summary of what state incentives are.available to them and overall we can be.a connector to resources so many times.companies or communities call us looking.for what the best financing.opportunities are and we can connect.them to the right resources whether it's.state local or federal or even private.and we do manage several programs here.in our Santa Fe office so that is the.local economic development act the.leader fund which is otherwise known as.fund it new markets tax credits the New.Mexico credit enhancement program the.rural efficient business program and a.new program a new federal program the.opportunity zones so all of these if you.have further questions about them feel.free to reach out to us to discuss more.I'm not going to go into detail about.them today I think Joel actually will.talk about some of them when he talks.about financing opportunities and then.to give you a little bit about idea.about funded this is a group that we.manage that is a group of.wonders so these are state and federal.representatives that that have funding.programs so that might be USDA or SBA.all of the acronyms the State Department.of Transportation the Department of.Environment all of these representatives.gather together quarterly to review.projects that are presented to them by.local government that involve economic.development or infrastructure so these.projects are reviewed and discussed and.brainstormed upon to give feedback to.that community about the different.financing opportunities that exist so.you might have an example where USDA.says that sounds like a great fit for.our rural business development grant and.then you have Department of Environment.saying okay this project fits into our.our clean water drinking program and you.might have Department of Transportation.say latching on and saying okay the the.street component we can fund so it's a.really fantastic opportunity to present.the product the projects and get a.variety of different feedbacks and so.here's a slide that shows a general.overview of the resource partners that.we have on the team so if you're.interested in that our upcoming meeting.is December 11th the cutoff for.applications is Friday of this week and.if you can't make that deadline you can.join the upcoming meeting in the new.year and which will probably be March so.you can go to our website to access that.information and brownfields projects are.completely open and eligible for funded.so it's it's often a really good fit.and another resource within our.department are our regional rep and as.you can see there's a map that's on this.slide that breaks the state into six.different regions hopefully you are.familiar with and know your regional rep.if you're not you can look at this this.slide or you can access information on.our website and you can get connected.with them there are boots on the ground.as they're often referred to they're the.front lines of the department they know.the area in which they're working and.know the players and can help point you.and your communities to the right the.right resources as well New Mexico Main.Street is in our department and they are.a fantastic resource especially when.dealing with brownfields and.redevelopment efforts.hopefully you're lucky enough to have a.Main Street organization within your.community if it's not feel free to reach.out to them as well so that sums up the.finance development team our our.services and programs that we manage and.the the other organizations are the.other entities that our divisions I.should say that are within our.department so without further ado I want.to introduce Jennifer and she's going to.get us started kay thanks Joanna my name.is Jennifer Muse and I'm with the.voluntary remediation and brownfields.program within the New Mexico.Environment Department I'd like to talk.briefly about what is a brownfield why.you should be interested in redeveloping.them and discussed the drawbacks and.benefits to redeveloping a brownfield.site okay it looks like the slides.aren't moving forward.should have control no okay now it's not.moving forward sorry about that okay.I'll go ahead and advance them just tell.me when you want to advance thank you so.what is a brownfield the EPA definition.of a brownfield is a real property the.expansion redevelopment or reuse of.which may be complicated by the presence.or potential presence of a hazardous.substance pollutant or contaminant so it.could be anything from an old gas.station to a vacant motel a former.industrial site or an abandoned dump.almost any site with prior use.brownfield does not have to be vacant.does not have to be a toxic waste dump.or an industrial wasteland and there may.not even be any hazardous substances.present next slide please.okay thank you the next couple slides.provide some examples of brownfield.sites this first example shows.before-and-after photos of the old train.depot and Tucumcari oops looks like we.actually jumped one over yeah there we.go thank you.the building was redeveloped into a.museum the building had asbestos.containing materials and now the.property is a railroad museum next slide.please okay the second example is a.sundowner motel in Albuquerque the.building was constructed in 1958 1959.the nonprofit new life home selected the.property for affordable housing there.was lead based paint and asbestos.on-site but now the site offers 71.apartments for veterans the formerly.homeless individuals with disabilities.and low and middle income families next.slide so how do you address brownfield.sites you start by identifying them you.can create an inventory of the sites in.your community and then once you have.the site's identified you need to.investigate them see if contamination is.present this is where phase 1 and phase.2 environmental site assessments are.really key.the phase-1 esa is a historical review.essentially you learn the prior site.used and the prior use of the area.around the site to help identify those.concerns and the phase 2 environmental.site assessment is the actual sampling.to confirm whether or not the.contamination is present after that you.clean up the site and address the.contaminants and then you can redevelop.the site and community community.involvement at all stages is critical to.successful projects next slide please.alright the benefits to redeveloping.brownfields are numerous for one you can.address environmental impacts that were.not previously addressed can redevelop.brownfields and this would allow you to.utilize existing infrastructure such as.you utilities or parking another benefit.is a removal of lighted property.redeveloping brownfields also limits the.development of green space and urban.sprawl and solicits community.involvement and ownership in the.redevelopment next slide please.of course there are some drawbacks when.redeveloping a brownfield site you are.redeveloping a property with a history.so there may be some surprises this is.why it's critical to get a good phase.one environmental site assessment before.you acquire the property utilizing.brownfields funding also comes with.certain requirements such as planning.documents and reporting requirements.exists as well sometimes takes a little.bit of work to entice developers to work.on brownfields projects that could.involve environmental contamination and.some developers will prefer to work on a.clean parcel potential liability also.exists and it is vital to conduct a.phase one environmental site assessment.within 180 days before you take title.and it's important to contact an.immediate potential environmental.liability next slide ownership and.liability considerations do vary by.state program liability at tank sites.typically stays with the original party.whereas liability at non tank sites.and transfers with the title and the new.property owner becomes responsible the.prospect is owner must have a current.phase one environmental site assessment.prior to taking title for voluntary.acquisitions the build act which was.passed by Congress in March 2018 amended.the brownfields provisions and with.these provisions if a publicly owned.property was acquired before January.11th 2002 without a phase one and the.owner is not responsible for the.contamination you could still be.eligible for brownfield funding after.acquisition the new owner must take.appropriate measures to ensure that a.release does not occur after you acquire.the property or you may lose eligibility.for brownfield funding next slide there.are several benefits when it comes to.redeveloping brownfield sites.specifically linked to the economic.development and community revitalization.repurposing a vacant or underutilized.property increases property tax revenue.in the area property values increase in.the area around a redeveloped brownfield.benefiting the neighbors community.involvement results in a redevelopment.that addresses the community need and.they were expanded businesses create.jobs and create more revenue also more.available goods or services or community.space brings more people to downtown.next slide now let's discuss the purpose.the purpose of a phase 1 the phase one.supports landowner liability protections.for the prospective property owner this.is critical for brownfield funding and.required for accessing the brownfield.funding also satisfies EPA's all.appropriate inquiries requirements the.prospective owner does their due.diligence prior to acquiring the.property showing they did not contribute.to contamination of the property the.phase one also helps buyers of real.estate understand environmental issues.that may be present at a property and.with the phase 1 lenders can determine.if they are making a high-risk loan and.lenders typically require a phase 1 as.well next slide please.these are our partners that provide.assistance for brownfields we have.Kansas State University technical.assistance to brownfields program so.this is also known as KSU tab they have.plenty of tools and great assistance to.offer including a brownfields inventory.tool grant proposal templates editorial.review outreach meeting participation we.also have EPA region six brownfields.program.taryn's on the call to discuss this a.little bit more they've got some great.services including targeted brownfields.assessments and redevelopment planning.next slide the New Mexico Environment.Department has the voluntary remediation.program and brownfields programs that.have several components we have the.targeted brownfields assessments or at.EPA communities and nonprofits can.request environmental site assessments.we prioritized requests based on.demonstrated community involvement and.plans for redevelopment and assessments.are done at no cost to the applicant.there's also the brownfields cleanup.revolving loan fund or RLS these are.low-interest loans for cleanups at.eligible brownfields we also offer the.voluntary remediation program or VRP the.state provides oversight for the.investigation and cleanup of sites the.person responsible for the contamination.may also be eligible the state offers a.certificate of completion when the work.is done and the VRP also has a lender.liability protection component to help.with property transactions next slide.the European brownfields program also.offers technical assistance please call.our email us with questions you might.have about environmental issues or.potential purchases we also offer.outreach will participate in webinars or.workshops throughout state and our.program can also help eligible entities.such as municipalities with their.assessments so please contact us if you.have a site in mind or any questions.next slide.so here's our contact information we're.happy to help please contact either.Rebecca cook or brownfields team leader.or Savannah Richards or myself Jennifer.Muse if you have any questions thank you.thanks so much Jennifer.we have Taryn up snow and Karen I'm.going to try again you should have.control over the mouse do you want to.try quickly ah.all right are with your flying right now.and I I'm not having any luck with that.okay and your keyboard Paris yeah cut.I'm trying them all in there none of.them were working okay all right well.tell me to move aside - no well that'll.be great thank you.Julianna my name is Karen and with.Environmental Protection Agency Thank.You Jennifer that was a wonderful.introduction and Jennifer covered a lot.of the important details about the.brownfield program what a brownfield is.how it's beneficial I'm going to be a.little bit more of a 30,000 foot view.and hopefully get to some success.stories where they might hopefully.resonate with you guys as an audience.next slide please.so the elements of brownfield.revitalization and I think Jennifer.covered this but I love this with all.the color here the first thing that we.asked communities to do is really look.at what is your reuse vision or goals.what does your community need.don't look for brownfields because.they're braunfels in every community I.don't care who you are they all every.community has one abandon or blighted.property or some eyesore that you know.probably could use a little tender love.and care so the first thing look at your.community and say what do we need do we.need affordable housing do we need.affordable health care do we need a.business corridor a business part do we.need services Thanks.you know maybe some retail those are the.things that you really need to look at.when you look at braunfels as a tool.then the next thing would be when you're.looking at your vision and goal now you.can go back and look at and say wow.there's a blighted property and it's.kind of holding up our ability to go.forward with our reuse vision or our.goal and so that's the inventory that.Jennifer had mentioned at this point yes.inventory OHS properties in that area.that you're identified as reuse goals.with reuse goals and then when you.identify those Brownsville's by the way.one of the things that we probably need.to emphasize is that there's limited.resources both at New Mexico Environment.Department and at the US Environmental.Protection Agency and so with limited.resources and funding means that.unfortunately you have to prioritize so.you have to pick out what is the most.important brownfield what's the one.that's going to get me the most bang for.my buck or I need to have it go or it's.my catalyst project whatever it is it's.your local priority driving it going.back again to your reuse vision.so if you're reuse vision says that you.need to have this whole a whole city.block or town block or your Main Street.revitalize and you've identified four.brownfield properties you need to.probably pick out one maybe two that are.the highest priority and then go on and.say well how can i leverage funding.resources again thank you very much to.you Mexico economic development because.they're a great partner on finding.leveraged other sources resources so.maybe you need to combine it with some.private finance or funding and maybe.some public finance and funding and.maybe some grant funding if it's a.really tough project so leveraging.funding resources because it's not just.having the reuse vision and I did an.inventory and prioritizing it it's.having the right kind of money to help.you move your project along so then.let's say that you kind of lined up some.of your funding options now you move on.to let's assess and clean it up on the.highest priority brownfield project or.site so doing that environmental side of.the assessment that phase one so.critical but maybe that phase one.environmental site assessment says that.there might be environmental conditions.of concern for example maybe it's an old.building it has asbestos or lead-based.paint or maybe it's an old gas station.and the tanks are no longer we're put in.place and we're never registered with.the state and you don't know the status.so doing that assessment really will.help you identify these things and see.is this something that you want to move.forward with and if the answer is yes.then maybe it'll also help you with.cleanup planning the Act you know to.plan it and say hey I need some cleanup.assistance from the state of New Mexico.or I'm a public entity or a non-profit.maybe I can compete for grant funding at.EPA for cleanup we're going to cover.that minute and then hopefully moving on.to the next level which is reuse you.know these are all things they're.combined this is kind of our we call it.the LMS but basically these things.interact.and this is kind of how we want you to.be thinking about it in terms of your.own community next slide please.you.so I call this the wheel of funding at.EPA on the you know top three so that's.the most common grants that we compete.out assessment grants being at the top.these are the most competitive grant.funding that we offer because there's no.match and so everyone comes in for this.one however it is the most competitive.and it actually has quite a high bar to.to meet in order to be selected for.funding the next one would be clean up.grants we do those every year those are.those are again pretty competitive but.you do have a 20% match for a clean up.grant and you have to do a lot of work.in order for you to come in for that.clean up grant and be competitive the.one over to the right revolving loan.fund Jennifer had mentioned about the.state of New Mexico having a revolving.loan fund grant under brownfields and.that means that they have the ability to.do loans you know to give to eligible.communities or businesses it can be.private as long as they meet certain.criteria there's 20% match for the.revolving loan fund grant and quite.frankly this is really a great program.to kind of catalyze because there's no.one else out there that is actually.going to fund a clean up grant or.cleanup fund you know project so the.bottom half of this table multi-purpose.is a new grant category at EPA it came.in with the new build act that was just.passed as here what does that mean that.means that we're combining both.assessment and clean up in one grant and.before all of you guys get excited.because I can hear all of y'all getting.really excited about that that is a.tough one because that means that your.your siteís your your the site that.you're looking at for site assessment.has to go through all that rigmarole and.then you have to go ahead and figure out.how to clean it up so if it's a private.property that's going to be really.contentious if it's public property so.you have to meet all these other bars.too.label you do access that clean up.dollars it's a tough one.it we've had it before in the past as a.pilot we're bringing it back out again.it is it seems really exciting but it.has a lot of Hoops so I'm not trying to.discourage anyone I'm just saying.be cautious think carefully the oh one.over to the right job training grants we.actually compete that one every other.year there's no match to that one and.that's to promote workforce development.so let's say a great example there's one.actually a job training grant at Santa.Fe Community College they're working at.promoting asbestos and lead based paint.abatement that's a really big thing.because that adds on to a construction.workers skill set they have to be.certified at the state in order to be.able to do abatement that actually.brings a higher dollar value for that.workforce another one would be.wastewater treatment plant operator that.was one of the job training grant.recipients in our region you know an.operator has to be certified if they.receive that certification for.wastewater treatment plant operator.their salary is in the six digit six.figures you know over $100,000 and.that's a pretty big number the bottom.line targeted brownsville assessments.and services EPA also provides.environmental site assessment phase one.phase twos words actual sampling happens.and a phase three which was what we call.a clean up plan what it can't do is do.the actual cleanup but we coordinate and.collaborate with New Mexico Environment.Department on New Mexico side so our.monies go further together so we may.combine two to do assessment together.again if it's a complex site next slide.please.and I want to emphasize this Jennifer.covered this but I cannot stress this.enough a phase one environmental site.assessment or what we call an all.appropriate inquiry actually creates.liability exemptions for the property.owner if you complete this phase one for.that prospect of purchase of property to.sort within 180 days it's not it's not a.big a deal if you will if you're not.looking for cleanup funding from either.Enemy D or EPA but if you are it keeps.that funding option open I I guess.that's the biggest message and it does.this you know shelf-life of this day one.it doesn't last forever.we've had communities come in and say.well I had a phase one done five years.ago I you know and then I took title to.it five years later I'm sorry that.doesn't count you have to have it within.that 180 days what happened to that to.that particular community well it closed.off funding options for cleanup for that.community it doesn't mean that they.couldn't go forward it just means they.have to finance and fund to clean up out.of their own pocket.and I just had a community come in to me.very recently an actual in city of.Houston as an actual developer who.bought property he had not had a phase.one done he was going through and got an.SBA loan and they did a transactional.screen on his loan and found out that.the proper he thought was adjacent to a.dry cleaner so now the bank has required.him to go back and do a phase one and.possibly a Phase two within a 45 days.because they're trying to close on this.loan and he's really in a tough pickle.and I asked him I said why didn't you.did the phase one before you bought the.property he says well I didn't want to.spend the three or five thousand dollars.he says I was in a hurry and I said you.know what I think that's really sad.because now you're having to fund.whatever if there's a cleanup that's.going to be needed or additional tap.you're going to have to fund it or.finance it on your own so again the.lesson learned do your phase one it's.the cheapest insurance you're ever going.to undertake when you're dealing in real.estate next slide please.let's get it let's talk about some.really good things with success stories.next slide please.arts and open space and culture and.history believe it or not New Mexico has.great art has beautiful open space has.culture abundance and has a long and.rich history next slide please.the la capilla and on Chihuahua Hill and.Silver's is a great example of kind of.all three this was a former silver mine.size the hill it was kind of.unattractive you can see it over below.before the before picture over to the.bottom left-hand corner you know it just.it's just kind of a bald spot in town.the picture above is a actual.black-and-white photo of a chapel that.used to be there no longer there and so.this great group of activists within.Silver City really wanted to see a.memorial to the silver lining and to the.chapel and so they work with they.actually was the city a town of Silver.City actually had a brown for assessment.grant they did an assessment found out.there was low levels of emanation that.were contained and they could safely.develop this as an open space and they.built that lovely tract over to the.right and they had that lovely little.enclosure and they have they still have.ceremonies and festivals there it's a.great space it's beautiful and I you.know again this was the town decided.they needed to beautify this area and.they that's what they do it's a great.example of using assessment grant.funding and promoting their history and.their culture and and a great open space.next slide please.another one that is kind of more of an.economic development although small.scale is Zuni Pueblo outside of Gallup.this gas station malko gas station.picture was taken in October 2012 it had.been in the petroleum surge tank program.for long-term monitoring because they.had a ground a I guess a petroleum plume.subsurface in the groundwater and from.release from old tanks and they were.able to document and release it from.petroleum storage tank because the.concentration of petroleum had finally.minimized and that was a that allows.despite to come in the Brownsville.universe which was great so we were able.to work with New Mexico Environment.Department actually New Mexico.Environment Department see here oh here.they did the they did a follow-up.assessment they did some small abatement.because there was asbestos and lead.based paint and that allowed the.community to come back in Zuni Pueblo.and demolish the structure and then what.they you're like well okay so now they.have an empty lot well actually they.have an empty lot where they host food.truck Friday.yes outed Zuni food trucks which by the.way contribute to the local economy a.lot of restaurant tours or folks start.out with food trucks they just can't.afford the you know expense of having.you know an actual space it's you know.the capital to do an actual structure is.it's pretty enormous and so this is a.great idea.and you'd think Wow Zuni how big a.population I think the village of Zuni.Pueblo is got a population I want to say.six or seven thousand at most and so I.think this is so creative and so so.onboard this is going to be partners on.their main tribal Main Street by the way.it's an interim land-use they may end up.building a new structure out there but.in the meantime while they gather there.resources and look for other funding.they're coming up with a creative.interim use food truck Friday next slide.please.I included this example from Texas yes I.know I'm talking to a New Mexico.audience but I really think that this is.very creative Throckmorton Texas which.is in West Texas it's it's probably.about an hour northeast of Abilene if.anybody knows where Abilene Texas is.West Texas it's got a population of 900.people very big but rock Morton really.values open space park space and so.instead of them trying to attract a.developer there what they've done is.they have made their Main Street be part.of their history as the Gateway to the.West.that's how they that's how they market.themselves that's how their branding.themselves they're the Gateway to the.West and so they've got these little.pocket parks I wish I had a picture of.their they've got sculptures in any way.I could go on and on about Throckmorton.but what they actually they're brown.folk why it was an old clothes gas.station it had several underground.storage tanks one that was a few three.were pierced by the Department of.Transportation when they were doing.repairs to the state highway and.Throckmorton had to actually pay for the.cleanup and removal of those three tanks.but there were three additional tanks.that were remaining that were intact and.Throckmorton came in for our brownfield.cleanup grant about $30,000 and we're.able to pay for the safe and proper.removal and disposal of those tanks and.then they built this little pocket park.in place of it it's very attractive it's.got low maintenance grass and I think.they're going to have sculpture there.and they took great place for them to.host a pop-up event whenever they need.one is a great use next slide please.hello next slide please.yeah I switched it it's do you not see.it.nope Lost Pines art centers alright well.I'll go with it lost nice art centers so.luckily Art Center is a great example of.a bigger scale it's over in Bastrop.Texas after Lawton area of West Texas.and I think this is a great example to.show you guys because LOC Pines it used.to be an auto repair you can see over to.the left it's got all this it was just.ugly it's on there main drags chest miss.ride and they had the metal building but.most of us have recognized those metal.structures it was overgrown and in any.case what happened was it was via the.bathroom Art Guild all these artists in.Bastrop gathered together and says we.really want a venue for us to do to.exhibit art to actually encourage and.promote art sculpture painting etc and.so they were able to acquire this.property the Texas Commission on Barbra.know quality did their we both we.combined with EPA and TCEQ and we did.decide assessment and they were able to.enroll this property the ambassador of.Art Guild into the voluntary cleanup.program got it cleaned up enough.sufficiently there you go.you have it read to have the structure.demolish and then they found the Capitol.god bless them to build this beautiful.art center that's all new construction.they have a great art venue you know.they have an exhibit venue they're.actually looking to host you know kind.of like artists of the of the month not.months but of the year to come in and do.sculpture and painting lessons they do.it for kids during the summer they've.even added a little wine bar I think you.see that in the middle so this is a.great example they were very creative.next slide please.you.uhh.is a can you join it can you forward it.on to the next book next slide.yes sorry there's a bit of a lack for.some reason thank you no worries so la.clínica de familia is an affordable.health care provider in Las Cruces New.Mexico and South New Mexico and I don't.know how about you guys but if you've.got a community where you had an old.hospital and this is a case closed.Memorial General Hospital this was where.generations of people in Las Cruces.community were born went and got their.arm fix if they broke it or lay went to.go see grandparents and you know while.they're in the hospital or died there.and so it has a lot of resonance in that.community and so what clinica.recognizing that acquired the proper the.the hospital from the city of Las Cruces.who by the way had bought it and.operated after City Hall when they while.they were waiting to build a new City.Hall and so clinical sign the funding.and finance to do a significant amount.of asbestos abatement over I think it.was - - and over $200,000 worth of.abatement but they were able to do that.enemy be again the hero came and did.great a site assessment they did a.survey for him and a clean up plan so.that enabled select clinica to find the.financed and they work with New Mexico.and economic development on financing.this site and now they've opened it up.they rehabbed it it is the Cervantes.complex Central Medical Center and it's.beautiful it's a great idea.some of you guys if you have an old.hospital you know don't jump to the.conclusion it's because it's old or.because it's got asbestos that it's.cheaper to just demolish it and start.new because a lot of times it's not you.have to actually abate the asbestos and.lead based paint before you can demolish.it and in point in fact a lot of the.structure is already intact you already.have a lot of good infrastructure.instead of trying to demolish it in.the new rehab it it might actually it.might pencil out easier and my go might.the deal might get better anyway this is.a great example and it was a great job.generator I you know what I can't stress.this enough it was really exciting when.to see this happen next slide please.next slide please.Hotel Clovis Clovis New Mexico at one.time this hotel was probably the tallest.building between you know California and.Texas and this is huge I think it's 12.stories and you'll see over to the left.and this gray day that they took this.picture this is been over ten years ago.it had all those broken windows it was.and this was obviously taken in the.winter of the bottom left-hand picture.that you see how it's you know it's it's.really the paint's peeling very ugly.it's got graffiti I didn't include the.picture where it had dead birds and dead.and lots of bird food cuz you and so the.city of Clovis and the East I think it's.easy Mexico Council of government bonded.together were able to this was a tough.deal they were able to find the finance.and they work together they got a.brownfield cleanup from EPA they worked.with New Mexico Environment Department.to do the assessment and they combined.all those resources to address the.environmental issues and they were.significant here because it sounds kind.of mean it sounds like a joke oh dude.dead pigeons and pigeon poo but if you.add on add that up for decades I.understand from the city of Clovis you.couldn't get actually walk past a 7th.floor because it was got so much debris.in there and when they had to do the.cleanup they actually had to wear what.you call these moontak full.encapsulation because of the bacteria.from those the birds droppings and the.and the dead carcasses so this is.actually a major undertaking and the.city of Clovis was able to find the.finance I believe they work with New.Mexico economic development again and.they found a developer and they build.its affordable housing and by the way it.is not a beautiful mural on that.building now that's pretty because of.this project the city of Clovis has.attracted the same developer to build.new apartments they're really on the way.to really revitalizing their Main Street.and although we're talking about.you know how affordable housing this is.also creating a lot of interest in.Clovis I understand there's the.University there's a lot things going.down there but it was just a huge.catalyst project that really got the.thing going for call this and you know.kudos to them next slide please.I'm just going to again reiterate the.Brownsville youth we have a new.reauthorization Brownsville utilization.investment local development brownfields.build act that was reauthorized in March.of 2018 there's a website please use it.for more information if you're doing a.little research and then the last slide.that's my contact information next slide.please.that's my contact information again the.website I hope that you guys will.consider this I think that it's a great.tool for revitalizing communities and I.look forward to hearing from you thank.you thanks so much Karen that was.wonderful really great information.so here's Joel Salah with the Economic.Development Department and I'll advance.the slides for you Joel.Thank You Jenna hey everyone today I'm.going to be talking about some various.financing tools that you may be able to.use in your brownfields project so by.this point here brownfields has been.assessed cleaned up and you're looking.for financing to finish to finish up.your project so I want to note that.there there's a large number of.financing options out there but it's not.necessarily a one-size-fits-all kind of.deal and many cases you might have to.get a little creative with your.financing with the financing tools in.order to to get the funding you may need.next slide please.so Joanna mentioned that's beginning.some of the services our office provides.but our office also manages a number of.different exits some of which provide.funds in some cases directly back to a.company the angel investment tax credit.is a way to raise funds for a project.where as the highlights jobs tax credit.and rural jobs tax credit our cash tax.credits that are available we work.directly with communities on industrial.revenue bonds the IRB light which is.done equipment only IRP new market tax.credits eb-5 regional investments and.and the new opportunities own next slide.please.so Leda to put it in the absolute.simplest form is grants in exchange for.job creation.it's the local Economic Development Act.funds are allocated by the legislature.to the department we make those funds.available to companies that are.expanding or relocating in New Mexico.funds can be used in land building and.infrastructure and the funds are awarded.based off of various factors such as job.creation and other demonstrated public.benefits naturally in the case of.brownfields we want them to be.remediated and developed so they would.get additional consideration these funds.are not 100 percent of the project money.but can be potentially 10 to 20 percent.an X Y C C so here we have a nice.summary of some public sector tools you.can see there towards the bottom we have.a list from least costly to most costly.with bond financing at the least costly.with grants all the way up it's most.costly and all the colors of the rainbow.in between next slide so bond financing.can be a useful tool for redevelopment.projects with many options depending on.the project bonds help spread the cost.out over time.and public debt in the form of municipal.bonds can give a community a way to.build now and repay with future income.so you can see on the bottom of the IRS.distinguishes between.two types of debt public use and private.activity bombs.next slide.public use bombs it can be known as.government or municipal bonds used for.purpose various purposes highways.schools parks etc general obligation.bonds are generally voter approved they.don't have a revenue stream and these.are often for projects that have some.form of public benefit next slide please.private activity bonds are issued by the.government for general public benefit.but immediate benefits are however going.to the private entities these are often.or commonly known as pass-through or.cognitive bonds this is because the.obligation to repay the principal and.interest rates rests with the private.entity involved and not the public.entity that issues the bomb an example.is industrial revenue bonds or.Industrial Development bonds are bees.are a tool to encourage business.expansions and location job growth and.capital investment.they must be issued before the project.starts and some of the types of projects.qualified as activity bonds are.redevelopment of designated blighted.areas or qualified manufacturing.projects next slide please.just going to briefly mention this slide.from our friends at consensus planning.if you have a metropolitan redevelopment.area you can do these bonds can be.useful you can see here they're similar.tire bees shorter seven-year term and.the municipality municipality is not.obligated on the bomb next slide please.so moving in a tax increment financing.there's a technique for funding a.qualified capital project it's related.infrastructure or maintenance of the.project from a stream of revenue.generated within the geographic area.defined as a TIF district depending on.regulations primary governments with.taxing powers can often use TIF or.redevelopment agencies can also be a.party to a test project as well as.mentioned here it is a mechanism to.capture the future tax benefit of real.estate improvements to pay the present.cost of those improvements next slide so.here's a useful illustration to help.visualize what's happening in at if you.can see requires adoption of.metropolitan redevelopment area just.kind of always good to have a little.visualization of what's going on with.some of these things I will say or.zygoma 'this.yeah if you are going to move forward.with a public activity bond or any.increment financing tools you will be.dealing with the Board of Finance who.will have they say on availability of.private activity bonds and as a deciding.decider on the increment financing tool.such as tips next slide please.so the new markets tax credit is.available for qualifying census tracts.so those are tracks with a poverty rate.of 20% or higher or a median family.income that is less than 80% of the.average for the state or region so it.encourages investment and development.and the slow to medium income areas by.lowering costs and reducing risks it.provides tax credits per dollar of.investment into the Community.Development entity and is allocated over.seven years with five percent for the.first three years and six percent.thereafter there's a good transition.into Opportunity Zones.a similar concept of encouraging.investment and redevelopment to low to.medium income areas that have been.designated as opportunity zones.I believe there's 63 census tracts in.New Mexico that have been designated.specifically as opportunity zones an.investor essentially an investor can.realize unrealized capital gains and.deposit those gains into a fund and then.deploy those funds into an opportunity.zone so the investors get tax incentives.and projects that might not otherwise.get funded get funded so that's.generally all I have for today.the.was a real quick run-through you know.high high level over the run-through of.some of the tools that are out there I.want to note that we have covered a.number of these topics in previous.webinars as trying to mentioned at the.beginning we do our kyv all our webinars.and then I would like to encourage you.to look through our Kies on our YouTube.channel if you'd like to hear more in.depth about some of the topics we've.talked over and again we'll be happy to.talk with you one on one with any.questions you may have thanks Joel and I.want to throw it out to the audience and.the participants if you have any.questions feel free to type those into.the questions box that you can see on.the right hand of the screen in the the.gray area feel free to get those out.while we have the experts online they.are willing and ready to answer your.question but a really really great job.on the part of the presenters and.hopefully if you have a community that.has a brown fields which can pointed out.that that there's there's no no shame.there there are brown fields in in all.of the regions and areas reach out to.your in New Mexico economic development.rep the the folks at the environment.that's Karen and I'm sorry that's.Rebecca and Jennifer in Savannah reach.out to the EPA there are plenty of.people on the ground in your area and.region that that can help and start that.process and figuring out how to.redevelop these areas so I'm not seeing.any questions coming in particularly you.do any of the panelists you have.anything to add before we.sign off at this is juan torres i just.wanted to chime in really quickly I.appreciate Karen pointing us in the.direction of the project she mentioned.while we did do some work with those the.funding actually came for the la familia.project from the New Mexico Finance.Authority although we do work very.closely with them to facilitate those.grants as well as the money through the.smart money program that came from the.Finance Authority for the Clovis hotel.project so just wanted to clarify I'd.love to take credit for everything but.you know wanted to be clear the Mexico.Finance Authority did you know provide.the funding for those two projects well.one you know I think you do everything.man that's that's why I always heard it.with you but you're so honest thank you.and we we are getting a few questions so.I'll go ahead and throw those out one of.the questions is a point of.clarification I didn't see the.definition of CDE.does someone want to take that sure so.qualified qualified excuse me.a certified development entity it's a.designation from the Department of the.Treasury that that allows the entity to.receive the tax credits in our case in.New Mexico our our our certified.development entity.excuse me Community Development entity.is the New Mexico Finance Authority and.they receive the credits on behalf of.the state and they process the request.for those credits through the finance.New Mexico arm great next question is.when will the presentation be available.online we will try to get that out today.so we'll send that out to all the.participants the next question is is the.KSU assessment free.the answer to that KSU techno cat.technical assistance is free yet and.okay though Kansas State University.provides visioning and planning I don't.know that they do assessment but they do.visualization and they'll do they will.actually do work with you guys if you.wanted to have a workshop they'll bring.in expertise but the answer to that.question is yes that service is free.okay wonderful and another one for you.Karen does EPA six have a GIS page of.all sites in New Mexico the answer to.that question is region six does not.have a GIS page separate what we do.actually have is that every brownfield.property that has actually been going.through either the states or through EPA.is listed in an acres database that's I.don't know what the acronym stands for.but it's a brownfields database and you.can actually there's an address that you.were interested in you could put that.address and see in a question on our.webpage national webpage it's called.cleanups in my community and it will.come up and tell you yeah there's.something going on there or not but to.that if you were looking specifically.about an inventory of brownfield sites.in New Mexico I would probably defer to.my colleague Jennifer specifically about.you know sites that they are working on.now thank you Karen and you could.contact us and we could send you a list.or you could also check out our.interactive GIS mapping tool that has.all of our VRP in brownfield sites great.and if you'd like Jennifer you could.email me that link and I'll send it out.with the slide deck and the link to the.presentation and okay that okay we hat.looks like we have a final question and.this is in regard to opportunity zone so.one if you're I think you're still in.line does the state have a plan to set.up a fund or review process.for dollar allocation of private.investment capital to the projects in.the opportunity zones wow that's quite a.question currently we are in the finance.development team are working on two.fronts for Opportunity Zones number one.is we're working with potential funds.that are being set up there's currently.three entities in New Mexico that are.that are expressed interest in setting.up a fund one fund called invest us.that's in Albuquerque Debora burns is.managing that and she is stated that.there they are setting up a fund and.there's two other entities that are.still considering it so we're working.with potential funds and trying to help.understand what kinds of criteria.they're looking for in terms of projects.and on the second front we're working.directly with communities to help them.kind of buff up they're qualified.designated Opportunity Zones in their in.their areas so we're actually going to.have fairly soon a new web tool on our.website that will have all of the 63.designated Opportunity Zones.Bhaiji is layered and we will give.communities access to upload additional.information to that to that web page so.that they can have some assistance in.marketing those zones to potential.funders so working with the funds to.better understand what projects are.looking for and working with communities.to help them better market those zones.and all of that is going to go up on our.website very in the next couple of weeks.great we had a few more questions come.in the first one is in regard to the.site assessment grant and that is does a.community need to show public.involvement before applying for a site.assessment grant.so that's actually very good question.under the competitive grant program for.brownsville assessments you do have a.criteria with regards it called it's.called cut committee engagement so my.public involvement yes so if you've.demonstrated that you have a you know.you're doing town hall meetings or.you're doing you know webinars or you're.doing social media and that's how you.engage your community that would that.would give you more point if you will on.your grant if it's when it's being.reviewed and they'd it is a very big.deal it's a very big part of brownfields.public involvement community involvement.and engagement okay thanks and another.one for you Karen can you please explain.the importance of a phase one ESA /a a I.oh my god Wow you know AI the importance.of you know the that's probably the most.important message if I hope that.everybody takes away it's called your.environmental due diligence and it is so.critical it's it's it's three to five.thousand dollars worth of investment for.you to take that property knowing that.it might be potentially contaminated and.not be held liable for that past.contamination if you once if you have.that phase one done by an environmental.professional it opens up the avenue for.funding for you for cleanup if you are a.public entity nonprofit ie you can come.in to compete for a clean up grant it.also opens up the ability to for you to.receive alone from New Mexico.Environment Department because you're.again had your phase one done if you.don't do that you're you can't get the.loan from the enemy D for cleanup so you.know it covers two things one it's a.protection for you for you know.liability or responsibility for past.contamination.but - it also keeps avenues of funding.open for you so it's it's really.critical and the third one and I think.colleagues are most important to.everyone else besides all this.gobbledygook about government is that.you need to know what you're buying it's.like buyer beware this is not this is.not buying like something you know and.Amazon where you say oh I see a great.picture of it and I'm going to buy it.the piece of property you needed to know.what's on that property why would you.buy something sight unseen or have you.know some kind of rapport it's that big.a common sense you know what the.business risk you're taking on by buying.that property if it's really that cheap.and it's really that big in a hurry for.a turnaround maybe you need to slow down.anyway that's my soapbox re thank you.and let's see I think that one more well.this will be our final question it is.for you again Karen can you describe who.is on the first contact team that.initiates the phase 1 process in M EDD.realtor land owner other city officials.etc that's actually a very good question.who's the first on the team I think the.first person on the team is whoever is.the local champion that's interested in.the project contacting New Mexico.Environment Department Jennifer and.Rebecca and Savannah are awesome if you.know what they are a great team of.people.New Mexico is so fortunate they have.invested a lot of the reefs of the.state's resource and the brownfield.program and have three people available.to you if you you know I have talked to.people directly you can always call me.of course you can't reach you know.Savannah or you can't reach Rebecca or.you can't reach Jennifer you're.certainly welcome to call me but I'm.always going to loop back to enemy D so.that would be for an assessment that's.how I would suggest please contact an.immediate if you can't reach them which.is probably you know it does happen.occasionally they're real busy folks.they may be out in the field and you're.certainly welcome to call me as the.fallback and we will we always we always.collaborate and partner together on site.assessment assistance in New Mexico.wonderful thanks so much and we had a.question come in that is in regard to.the meeting on December 11th and and so.I wanted to go to this slide these are.some upcoming nm EDD FDT events and.these these relate to brownfields.financing they can be options to fund.certain aspects of brownfields projects.so we have an upcoming rural efficient.business program workshop and Carlsbad.that is a program that that we go to.different regions of the state along.with an engineer from energy minerals.Natural Resources and help businesses.and AG producers address efficiency.issues and energy consumption issues and.we look at the importance of conserving.energy and look at does it make.financial sense to implement renewable.energy technology so this can be helpful.if you have businesses in in your.downtown communities that are looking to.save money and our next one is in.Carlsbad December 5th you can register.at that link and we will be in Gallup.that will be our final workshop in March.and then the funded meeting that I.referenced earlier this can be a.fantastic outlet when you are.brainstorming and questioning how do you.finance a particular project and it can.be in a brownfields area it can be a.redevelopment area anything that has to.do with economic development efforts or.infrastructure in your community you can.present an application to the funding.group and if it's a good fit you can.make that presentation to the group and.get excellent feedback first-hand.experience and knowledge from the the.group members there so the application.cut off this is an era says November.29th but it's actually Friday so that's.November 30th that's coming up it's this.week if you don't make the cutoff for.this meeting you can apply for the first.quarter which that cutoff will be.sometime at the end of February early.March and our next webinar series that.we will be addressing that'll be a.December 20th and Joleen slowin with the.DFA we'll be talking about CDBG funding.that will be a good insightful webinar.that's coming up you can register at the.link and then want to point out that the.enemy DD financing we're actively.enrolling lenders and projects into our.credit enhancement program this is a.program that's relatively new that can.assist businesses that have projects and.are looking to get a commercial loan but.have a gap in fontana collateral so that.means that if they're looking to get a.hundred thousand dollar loan but maybe.they're a service business they don't.have a lot of assets and the bank is.willing to give them the loan aside from.the fact that they they're missing that.hundred percent collateralization so.maybe they have a deficiency of twenty.thousand dollars we can come in and.purchase a CD in the bank our lending.institution for that amount so in this.example 20 thousand so the bank will.make the loan so that's a really.exciting program that that we have so if.you have businesses that are looking to.do projects and need financing this is a.great tool that we have so please.contact us if you have any questions.here is our contact one whom we heard.from finance team leader Joe solace.finance development specialist myself.and we have the links to our our team.page and as well as the department page.so again I want to thank Karen and.Jennifer for the excellent job and.resources that they provided in this.exciting topic of brownfields as Karen.mentioned there's there's a lot out.there a lot of potential projects in New.Mexico and in a lot of corresponding.people that can help and reach.so feel free to contact any of the.panelists so we can we can assist your.communities and in their projects so.thank you for tuning in and hope to see.you at one of the upcoming events and.thanks to the panelists thanks to to.Jennifer and Karen and Joel thank you.bye-bye thanks.
