Change is ahead for Detroit’s riverfront with more focus on recreation, a commercial district and upscale residential.
Mark Wallace, CEO of Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, discusses the game plan for the riverfront on CBS 62’s “Michigan Matters” airing 11:30 Sunday. Wallace, who also owns a guitar creating business in Detroit, also talks about it as well.
Then, Michele Hodges, of the Belle Isle Conservancy, gives an update on the island and the upcoming “Polish the Jewel” event taking place this Thursday. The annual fundraiser will attract over 400 women wearing their Sunday best hat at the luncheon. Denise Ilitch is serving as chair of the luncheon.
And Bill Haney, well known author and publisher of over 400 books, will talk about his newest effort “One Cup at a Time” which highlights 11 Metro Detroiters from the World War II generation discussing their inspirational lives.
There will be a book signing event Oct. 19 at Deer Lake Athletic Club in Clarkston featuring Haney and 10 others who contributed to the book.
You can hear the conversation by watching “Michigan Matters” 11:30 Sunday on CBS 62.
