Vision of growth and development in Asheville: “It is my vision that we should continue along the same track that we have been on for the last number of years which has made our city the envy of most North Carolina towns. Since annexation is no longer a source of growth, we must look elsewhere. My idea is that we must look to the in-fill of many vacant properties and encourage more multi-storied buildings. In other words, higher but not wider. In using this approach we should not forget that architecture is a major appeal for our city so growth should fit the neighborhood. We have a unique city and that uniqueness should be preserved at all costs.”

Professional affiliations: UNC Asheville Foundation Board of Directors
