Downtown Business Owner’s Meeting

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Save the date for the Downtown Business Owners’ meeting at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. On the agenda is a discussion about free parking in the garages in June. The DDA has approved a budget figure to provide up to eight days of free parking in the garages in June to celebrate the grand opening of the new 565-spot parking deck.

Valeo, a French automotive supplier with its North American headquarters in Troy, exhibited its newest electric vehicle technology at the Shanghai International Auto Show in China.
