Main Street West Virginia partners in projects to restore industrial sites to economic life.
After a career as an industrial or commercial site, some locations need a makeover to spring back into a useful new life.
Several sites around the state are getting a helping hand from Main Street West Virginia and the Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center (NBAC). They are partnering through the NBAC’s West Virginia Redevelopment Collaborative (WVRC) to remediate project sites in participating Main Street and ON TRAC communities. The WVRC assembles multi-disciplinary teams to give communities the expertise and guidance needed to redevelop the property for the greatest economic, environmental or social good.
