Roanoke Mayor David Bowers is delivering a highly positive assessment of the city’s current course — and its future — in today’s State of the City address. The mayor says Roanoke is “on the right track” in many respects, and its future looks bright. He points to things ranging from the expected return of Amtrak service to high school graduation rates to major building projects now or soon to be under way.  WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
