Oakland County's Department of Economic Development & Community Affairs, the City of Pontiac, and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Michigan will hold a news conference to discuss the launch of a project to explore the feasibility of "daylighting" the Clinton River in downtown Pontiac.
The ULI will utilize real estate, development and planning professionals who are participants in its Larson Center for Leadership to study whether the benefits of daylighting the Clinton River will outweigh the costs. Some of the Larson participants who will be directly involved in the project will be on hand at the news conference.
Speakers will include Deputy County Executive Matthew Gibb, on behalf of County Executive L. Brooks Patterson; Pontiac Mayor Leon Jukowski; City Council President Lee Jones; Glen Konopaskie, president of the Pontiac Downtown Business Association; and William Watch, chairperson of ULI Michigan.
1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013
The Crofoot, 1 South Saginaw, Pontiac
