Event description

Description

Debra Campbell comes to Asheville from the City of Charlotte, where she was employed in many strategic roles including her most recent position as Assistant City Manager. Prior to joining the Charlotte City Manager’s office, Campbell served as the city’s Planning Director from 2004-2014, a time of booming redevelopment for the Queen City.

Campbell’s list of accomplishments and strategic initiatives during her tenure as Charlotte’s Assistant City Manager include supporting the development of the Housing Charlotte Framework, a 10-year strategy for community collaboration to increase the supply of affordable housing. She initiated expansion of a public engagement effort in which city employees of all levels were asked to take 10 minutes to engage a person of a different race in a face-to-face conversation about city issues and concerns.

Campbell also led an interdepartmental group to identify and address issues related to safety, trust and accountability, good paying jobs and affordable housing. And she had a hand in coordination with federal and state officials on the funding and development of a rapid transit system resulting in the construction of 19.3 miles of light rail and millions of square feet of transit oriented development being built at the various transit stations in Charlotte.

Building our City is brought to you by the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority, Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty, the Asheville Downtown Association, the City of Asheville, the Asheville Design Center of MountainTrue, Urban 3, Carleton Collins Architecture, Asheville Grown, Aloft Asheville Downtown and Friction Shift.
