Wed, 11/15/2023 - 13:40

The panel, moderated by Nilay Oza and Edgar Papazian, both members of the American Institute of Architects, will focus on "the architect's position in future-proofing our region while addressing some of the major concerns related to the built environment, including affordable housing and historic preservation," according to a release.

Taking part will be John Shaka, chairman of the village planning board; Denise Schoen, a real estate and zoning attorney; Daniel Weaver, a land surveyor; Erica Broberg Smith, an architect, and Paul DiLandro, an engineer.

A question-and-answer period will follow. Space is limited. Registration is at
