Join the Asheville Downtown Association for our annual State of Downtown Luncheon, presented by First Bank. We'll take a look back at our work in 2016 highlighting accomplishments as well as discuss our priorities for downtown in 2017. You'll also hear from City of Asheville Mayor Esther Manheimer and Buncombe County Commission Chair Brownie Newman. Both will discuss city and county priorities and initiatives for downtown.
Joe Minicozzi of Urban3, an internationally known speaker from here in Asheville, will also talk about the importance of investing in downtowns using economic modeling, visualization and graphing. He'll also give examples of projects and funding sources other communities are using to increase the value of their downtowns.
Catered lunch included. This event typically sells out.
Thanks to First Bank and the City of Asheville for making this event possible.
