Mayor David Bowers

Roanoke Mayor David Bowers delivers the annual “State of the City address this morning, one loaded with plenty of optimism for the city’s  future — and a much larger city center. Bowers says this is no longer some distant vision, not with much of the former Victory Stadium area now rezoned for development, and not with the Valley View interchange now scheduled for completion, allowing development across I-581. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
