Vision for growth and development in Asheville: “I believe the economic downturn has actually presented us with an opportunity to refocus on our vision for the future of Asheville. I envision a city that is vibrant, diverse and sophisticated, a global leader among small cities in terms of sustainability and quality of life.

Asheville is clearly a unique place. What I believe makes it attractive to so many is the wonderful balance of urban, small town and natural amenities. Having been involved in sustainability for nearly 20 years now, I, like many others, brought my family to Asheville almost 9 years ago because I foresaw the nexus of smart, sustainable community evolving in this eclectic little city. What has developed over my time here (the emergence of the green economy, et al) has created the opportunity to present Asheville as a national model for smart growth and sustainable development if we are willing to commit ourselves, as individuals, and as a community, to this goal.”

Professional affiliations: Leadership board on Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute, Ambassador for the Living Building Institute
