Claire Brill (GISDE ‘08)
The paper, which came about through her involvement with the City of Worcester’s Mayor’s Brownfields Roundtable, compares the perceived priorities of decision-makers with the stated desires of stakeholders concerning brownfield redevelopment in Worcester.
Redeveloping brownfields left over from Worcester’s industrial past is a critical strategy for Worcester’s development future.
Claire found that, while economic development and job creation are the apparent focus for one set of influential decision-makers, protection of natural resources and public health are important to another group of stakeholders. This multi-stakeholder approach has served Claire well in her profession.
You can’t be a specialist. You have to be able to market yourself in different disciplines, which is what I have taken from my experience at IDCE.
