“It has been a tremendously exciting two years to be president of Appleton Downtown, Inc. We have progressed through the parking study, the mobility study and now the comprehensive plan. With the construction of the Exhibition Center and the excitement over the potential mixed use development of the bluff site, the future of the Downtown is definitely on the move. All of this assures Downtown remains ‘one great place’.”
On March 15, 2017 at the Annual Meeting and Breakfast for Appleton Downtown, Inc., as outgoing president, John was presented with a piece of art, created by Chad Brady. Chad Brady has created some of the wonderful murals around downtown Appleton, such as the bee and butterflies at Gabriel Furniture.
