    Duggan introduces city planning director, neighborhood development at Mackinac conference

    Mackinac Island — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan discussed side lot sales, connecting residents to the Riverfront, growth and revitalization of the city’s neighborhoods during a keynote speech Tuesday at the Mackinac Policy Conference.

    After a 28-month hiatus, the conference resumed this week with a theme of “reimagining a healthy Michigan” at the island’s Grand Hotel with fewer attendees and strict protocols.

    Duggan, during an hour-long fireside chat in the hotel’s grand theatre, gave updates on neighborhood development and introduced Antoine Bryant, Detroit’s recently appointed Planning and Development Department director.

    Arn Tellem, vice chairman of Pistons Sports, introduced Duggan to the stage as “The best mayor in the United States.”

    The conversation was moderated by Lloyd Jackson, senior news analyst with WJR NewsTalk 760 AM, who kicked off talking about rebuilding and rebirth of the city of Detroit.

    “I remember when you couldn’t buy anything more than a wig. The city is totally different,” Jackson said.
