Three years ago, DMA was blessed when Anthony Moreschi agreed to oversee its biggest and busiest committee, the capital improvement committee. Since that time, Anthony has guided the capital improvement committee through many projects including: production and installation of Midway banners throughout the district, storefront improvement grants for three district businesses and a visioning process that has resulted in a list of prioritized projects for the district. Trash cans and a mural are two of the projects slated for this summer.
Anthony is the chairman of this vital panel that decides how DMA allocates Tax Increment Funds (TIF). Anthony is also an architect, so he’s perfectly suited for the task. Anthony graduated from the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture. Before his current job at Oregon Health Science University, he was an architect at a firm focusing on storefront improvements, and doling out storefront improvement grants is one of the committee’s primary responsibilities.
Anthony, who lives in the Hazelwood neighborhood, says, “My volunteering in the community is to forward thoughtful development, livable, safe streets, community partnerships, and simply helping our neighbors and businesses become successful.”
DMA is not the only beneficiary of Anthony’s volunteer work. He is involved with his children’s many activities, as well. Anthony volunteers with Floyd Light Middle School’s Career Day, Friends of Trees and Depave, an organization that removes asphalt and turns it into green spaces.
Volunteers like Anthony are making Division Midway a better place to live and to own a business. DMA could not do its work without volunteers like Anthony Moreschi and is pleased to share their great work with the community at large. Thank you Anthony, and all DMA’s great volunteers.
