A regional group is hosting economic development input sessions, with one scheduled locally.
The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments is seeking input as it develops Southeast Michigan’s next regional economic development strategy. Interactive sessions are scheduled in November and December in Livingston, Monroe, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties. The local event will be held at noon December 4th at the Genoa Township Hall off Dorr Road.
