WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The League of Women Voters and Rotary Club are co-sponsoring a panel discussion tonight titled "Downtown White Plains: Current Trends and Future Possibilities."
The discussion by a panel of planning experts will focus on "how to influence development,'' according to Madeline Zevon of the League of Women Voters of White Plains.
