Asheville Downtown Association Board President Adrian Vassallo will give an update on the ADA’s accomplishments in 2012 as well as outline its priorities for the upcoming year.

“2012 was a great year for the ADA. We celebrated 25 years serving the downtown community, saw city council approve a Municipal Service District for downtown and had record-breaking attendance at our events. We’re looking forward to continuing this momentum in 2013 by building on our success and being the lead on new initiatives to make downtown better for all,” said Adrian Vassallo, Asheville Downtown Association board president.

Asheville Mayor Terry Bellamy and Buncombe County Commissioner Holly Jones will also give presentations on city and county priorities and initiatives for the central business district.
