This new development plan could be the opportunity to redo the floodwall, at least the portion from 8th to 10th street, and install the invisible/removable flood wall. The City of Louisville has this type of setup.

I also agree that this is the time to develop the riverfront with a nice restaurant, possible boardwalk and a better docking facility for the river cruise ships. Also, maybe even a new amphitheater for the outdoor concerts.

As a native of Parkersburg, I'm all for removable floodwalls where appropriate.
