Central City Association CEO Carol Schatz answers a question about the Restaurant & Hospitality Express program in June.

Among its Friday presentations, City Council will tomorrow be honoring Carol Schatz, president and CEO of the Central City Association, on her 20th anniversary with the business lobbying organization as a visionary leader and determined advocate for the development of Downtown.

Behind every great city, one might say, there is a great woman willing to spearhead and direct progress. Schatz recently talked at length with the Downtown News about her two decades, citing the passage of the adaptive reuse ordinance as her most significant accomplishment.

A presentation given by Schatz that can be found on YouTube is well-worth watching. While the soundtrack is questionable, the scope and magnitude of the issues at the core of her work should resonate with anyone living in Downtown.

The Council presentation will take place on Friday, July 23rd at 10:00am at Council Chambers (City Hall, 3rd floor).
