The Miller-Roy building is set to be redeveloped in Monroe.

Downtown areas sometimes struggle without a strong business base. Bill Roark is a long time commercial real estate broker. He knows what it takes to attract business and devolopment in downtown areas. Roark thinks there must be a "Uniqueness" to hook  people into using downtown areas.  KEDM Policy and a Pint: A Rebirth on the River will tackle downtown redevelopment  with an expert panel that will answer audience questions.

Join KEDM for Policy and a Pint: A Rebirth on the River on Tuesday, September 18 at Trapps - 113 Riverfront, West Monroe. There will be a meet and greet at 5:30 p.m. and the "LIVE" radio discussion will start at 6:00 p.m.
