Other panel members include Dan Hunter, manager, Oakland County Economic Development Department; Kristi Trevarrow, executive director; Rochester Downtown Development Authority; and from the City of Rochester Hills, Dan Casey, manager of economic development, and Ed Anzek, director of planning development.
The event will be held Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Road.
