Monday, November 11, 2013 — The search for a new executive director for Albemarle Downtown Development Corporation (ADDC) may be entering its final weeks.

“We are still reviewing applications. We are in the interview process,” said Blake Martin, who is board chairman for ADDC and chair of the search committee.

Martin said the hope is to  have an offer on the table by end of November.

“We had a good mix of local and out of state and regional applicants that were there. We have a lot of viable candidates,” Martin said.

“We’re just trying to make the best decision we can ... (and) keep city’s needs and historic needs in mind.

“We want to make sure we have the right person who brings positive skills to the position.”
