The City of Huntington and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will cosponsor a “Making a Visible Difference in Communities Forum” in Huntington, West Virginia on Tuesday, December 8, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Huntington Big Sandy Civic Center.
This forum will assemble partners from local, regional, state and federal government, together with not-for-profit, philanthropic, academic, and private sector leaders. The forum will provide an opportunity to discuss how inter-governmental, inter-agency, and public-private partnerships can help Huntington overcome economic and community challenges, and make progress on revitalization initiatives, particularly along the Ohio River waterfront and the Highlawn neighborhood. For background on Huntington and its community revitalization initiatives, please see the "Huntington Innovation Project" report at the following link, particularly information about Huntington's riverfront and brownfield revitalization efforts at pp. 24-29 of that report. www.cityofhuntington.com/assets/pdf/document-center/COH_Proposal_FINAL.pdf.
A formal agenda will be posted shortly.
