Project aims to rebuild local communities

Written by Mike Atkinson on . Posted in Media, News

The West Virginia Redevelopment Collaborative and The Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center are looking to rebuild communities across West Virginia by restoring undeveloped areas known as Brownfields.

The effort was launched with an event known as “Extreme Makeover: Brownfields Edition”, where eight cities from across the state were in the running to receive funding for the projects. Chester, Moundsville, Wheeling, Osage, Fairmont, Berkeley Springs, Shinnston and Parkersburg were invited to the event.

The NBAC has selected the four city projects to receive more than $20,000 in funding toward redeveloping the area.
