According to a Moody's release the assessment reflects the following factors: An adequate economy benefiting from a broad and diverse Huntington-Ashland metropolitan statistical area (MSA) with the stabilizing presence of Marshall University; adequate budget flexibility; strong liquidity for both debt service and expenditures; strong budgetary performance; adequate management conditions; and weak debt and contingent liabilities with major budgetary pressures from pension costs. (You can view the Moody's release as a PDF download.)

The credit rating increase is great for the city.

I'll be moving to Barboursville permanently (well, at least for a while) in May. Haven't been to Huntington since July of 2012. Can't wait to see how it's changed.

That would make much more sense. Not sure if they'll move it though since they recently put new bathrooms at the current visitor center.

I can see both existing if the current rest stop location is geared toward travelers and long haul truck drivers. That way the new visitor center can focus on the promotion of the area.

Huntington is one of five cities out of 63 applicants selected for a Livable Communities in Appalachia grant as chosen by the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Appalachian Regional Commission.

The city will receive a technical assistance grant from those three agencies to promote economic development, preserve rural lands and increase access to locally grown food.

It's that last category that the city will focus on.
