City Ave Leadership Team

Terrence Foley

President & CEO


Meet Terrence, the President & CEO of the City Ave District. He’s the man who led the charge for approval of the game-changing new zoning ordinance passed in 2012. It is transforming the area from a crowded auto-intensive corridor to a much more pedestrian-friendly, vibrant and diverse hub of businesses, residences, and entertainment.


Terrence oversees all aspects of the District’s management and its programs, including recently completed $7 million streetscape and lighting projects. What’s next? Oh, just an additional $9 million in improvements to come over the next three years.
