Trey Hess, PPM’s director of brownfields and economic development, will present on the Mississippi Economic Redevelopment Act (MERA) and explain how communities can leverage this legislation to increase private sector partnerships. Hess will discuss how the city of Starkville used MERA to develop the Mill at MSU, creating a gateway to the university and a vibrant center for the city.
