Economic Development

ASHLAND, Ky. — Downtown Ashland might be seeing more rental space following the sale of the Park Place building to a doctor from California. In April, Dr. Vikas Ghai, an oncologist at Adventist Health Bakersfield, bought the building at auction for $735,000, according to Boyd County PVA records. Bobby Meade, owner of Central Uniform and Scrubs inside the building at 1701 Central Avenue, is acting as the eyes on the ground for VSI Assets, the holding company Ghai created to buy the building. Meade said the idea for the building is to transform it into a mix of commercial and rental spaces, but he said the situation is “fluid.”

President's Report

July 16, 2021

Stronger With You! Hello from the desk of the Alliance. I am traveling today so I penned this message on Thursday. More and more, each of us are getting back out there. This is great for our business community and for each of you. This week we announced our first Business After Hours in the post-COVID world! We are partnering with King’s Daughter Medical Center for a special event on July 28th, 2021. Please plan to come for the 4 pm celebration with Governor Beshear and University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto along with our own Kristie Whitlatch.  Following this celebration is our Business After Hours. If you plan to attend please RSVP as soon as possible. All of this fun is being held at the new King’s Daughter Pavilion in Russell. We have missed partnering with you for opportunities to network and socialize. It is time to get back out there, just in a safe manner.  This week we also partnered with Eastern Grace Wedding & Event Venue for a wonderful Ribbon Cutting. This is the third ribbon cutting in 4 weeks in Greenup County. This wonderful venue is open for business for weddings and special events. In the last 24 hours there have been over 5,000 views of the ribbon cutting on our Facebook page! Great work from Susan and the crew of the Alliance.
