The park was chosen because of its suc- cess in helping to catalyze the revitalization of downtown— serving as a primary gather- ing place, a draw for economic development, a beautiful sig- nature square, and a positive image for Detroit locally and internationally. Also in 2010, Detroit was one of four cities chosen to participate in the Daniel Rose Fellowship, the signature pro- gram of the Rose Center for Public Leadership, operated jointly by ULI and the Nation- al League of Cities. Former Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and his team, who served as Rose Fellows, worked with the Rose Center on a strategy to revive Livernois, once a primary commercial thoroughfare, as a thriving destination for retail and dining. product that you plan to incor- porate in your retrofit.

During the session sched- uled for March 6, Heft will be joined by Kenneth Cornell , managing principal at Enviant. Together, they will explore the environmental, facility- and contractor-specific exposures currently plaguing the energy industry. “There are numerous con- tamination pathways driving the need for insurance coverage within the energy sector,” ex- plains Heft. “Even simple spills and mishaps can lead to years of litigation and costly clean- ups. In addition, the limited pollution coverage provided

in some General Liability and Control of Well Policies may not be enough to mitigate these exposures. This session will discuss current environmental risk management trends, while highlighting motivational fac- tors and the overall impact of claims on the bottom line and the organization’s credibility. “ERIC is the perfect venue for helping insurance profes- sionals and risk managers understand the multitude of emerging liabilities and the coverage forms available to protect against issues and overcome delays,” adds Heft.
