Redevelopment Institute Advisory Board member and Vita Nuova president Michael Taylor was awarded a lifetime achievement award for excellence in thought leadership at the December National Brownfields Training Conference. The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), which honored Taylor and two other brownfield redevelopment practitioners, noted that awardees are “problem solvers and innovators…whose work is helping make the built environment more livable, sustainable, and equitable.” CCLR noted Michael’s foundational contribution to the field with his idea to create an ASTM Brownfields standard and his work on Superfund sites in support of many EPA initiatives. Through his consulting firm, Vita Nuova LLC, Michael has facilitated the training of thousands of redevelopment stakeholders and created replicable tools for communities to use in their revitalization efforts.
