July 2012- Myers Attends National Brownfield Association NY Chapter Meeting
Steve Myers attended the NBA NY Chapter meeting in Buffalo on 7/18/12 on the status of Brownfield Tax Credits. The NBA NY Chapter held a meeting in Buffalo, NY to discuss the status of tax credits under the NY Brownfields program. Presentations were made by David Flynn of Phillips Lytle (NBA Board member and NY Chapter President), Dale Desnoyers (former head of NYSDEC Remediation Division) and Mark Gregor ( Head of Env. Services, City of Rochester). Concerns were expressed over the many changes made by the State in recent years and position the State Dept of Tax and Finance is taking on projects which can deny the credits after the investment is made. The sunset date of 3/31/15 has been extended to 12/31/15. The lack of clear and predictable tax implications is effecting the decisions being made by developers and investors in whether to proceed with brownfield redevelopment projects. Robert Colangelo, Exec Director of the NBA, spoke of NBA's focus on "green on brown"- the construction of sustainable projects on former brownfield sites. To that end, a well thought out risk management approach is needed to minimize liability and maximize asset value.
