Matt Wurster plans to add value to downtown Ashland. Wurster is the owner of two Main street buildings being demolished this week. "When I bought the buildings, I knew they were in rough shape," Wurster said. "The intent was to fix them up and lease them out." However, due to the structural issues with the buildings Wurster instead plans to convert the property into “some kind of open space” designed to add value to downtown. According to Richland Source, Wurster said he is working closely with city leaders and consulting the Ashland Main Street downtown community to determine how the space can best be used.
