WASHINGTON, D.C. (Feb. 10, 2012) — The Urban Partnership of Covington (www.covingtonup.com) was saluted in an international trade industry publication dedicated to the revitalization of urban centers.
IDAdvantage is the weekly online newsletter of the International Downtown Association, a champion for vital and livable cities that strives to inform, influence and inspire downtown leaders and advocates. The newsletter featured UP in its February 9, 2012, online addition. IDA President & Chief Executive Officer David Downey CAE says UP deserves the recognition.
” IDA provides expertise and guidance to executives dealing with the myriad of issues their organizations face. But of equal value to our members is their ability to simply share best practices with peers. The membership spotlight provides that and we salute the city of Covington for its innovative efforts at creating a more livable environment in their downtown.”
