Good post elewis7. I definitely think that the benefit would all be for Ohio with the majority of the cost being taken up by West Virginia. I would definitely hope that Ohio would be expected to bear more of the cost if this bridge if it ever happened in the manner proposed in the article.

I agree with elewis in that if a new bridge is built, it should be in the South Point/Ceredo-Kenova area. Even if that would be a possibility, Ohio needs to fund at least half of the cost.

Nice update on Huntington's ABC improvements:

America's Best Community: Projects progress behind the scenes | News | herald-dispatch.com

A key component of the plan will likely be the development of the property that used to house the Northcott Court public housing complex. The site has long been the desired location of a grocery store as well as space for housing, retail and commercial buildings. Layne said officials are continuing to talk with developers about the property, especially now that all the housing units are demolished.
Quote:
Across the street from the Northcott property, Phoebe Patton Randolph, principal architect at Edward Tucker Architects Inc. and a member of the Fairfield Alliance, said her firm is working on plans for student housing for Marshall University pharmacy students.
Quote:
A big focus is also being placed on the businesses along 14th Street West and how to make that area more accessible and appealing to travelers by adding more signage, streetscaping and green infrastructures. Layne said grant applications have been submitted to fill all those needs. She added that they have discussed creating a Main Street organization with the Central City Business District.

Breaking up the area that encompasses 27th Street to 20th Street between 3rd Avenue into four zones - University Park, Sport Complex Expansion, Foundry Center and Polymer Tech Center - the H-Biz project identifies the possibility for the following:

n 379,000 square feet of mixed-used development, including a new hotel and conference center.

n 181,000 square feet of advanced manufacturing expansion.

n 97,300 square feet of retail.

n 400,000-plus square feet of parks, open space, athletic and recreational facilities, including a baseball stadium for Marshall University and regional use.

(For the Gigabit City)Instead of shouldering the entire burden of cost of building a new network, Lemley said the city is instead working to streamline regulations in order to make it easier for businesses to make these upgrades. Lemley said the shift in plan was the result of meeting with several companies that revealed they were already working toward improving internet services but found regulations to be a tough hurdle to overcome. "They identified that one of the biggest challenges is going through rights of way and permitting and navigating the bureaucracy of all this, not only on a local level but a state and federal level," Layne said.

It's nice to hear about the updates and developments. I like the idea of the student housing in the Fairfield area. Along with the Northcott development, I hope those two projects jump start the revitalization of that area.
