What's??? Really?!?! Wow thanks NIMBYs

If I remember correctly, there was only one person/family that wouldn't sell. Everybody else had already agreed and was ready to move. It was on some land off of Route 60 just past the Milton Flea Market.

A couple of interesting things on the council's agenda:

Huntington City Council Agenda Announced | Huntington News

Looks like there are some improvements in store for the Arena's plaza:

6. 2nd Reading of an Ordinance re: AN ORDINANCE OF COUNCIL AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT TO FURNISH LABOR, MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT TO RENOVATE THE BIG SANDY SUPERSTORE ARENA PLAZA AREA
And it looks like there may be some changes coming to the original Riverfront plan. It could be nothing, but maybe we might hear something soon:

Doesn't look like the Big Sandy Superstore improvements are anything too major. Too bad we can't have something like they are doing to the Charleston Civic Center, that would be amazing!

Yeah that's disappointing, but I'll take our Riverfront project over Charleston's arena improvement any day.

That is true, the Riverfront project is much more exciting, conceptually, I just hope that they can find a way to accelerate the timeline and get some real funding and investment behind it.

Well I'm not too worried about the funding. They will find it and make it happen. I mean of course faster is better. But the city is legally bound to get it done or face a payment of millions of dollars to Superior Marine.

I guess it's nice to see something so grand be more than a fantasy project.

The Arena Plaza renovation may not be a big project to get excited about but every little bit matters and helps to improve the feel of the city. With the Riverfront project, continued business growth downtown and the projects being worked on through America's Best Communities, I'm excited to see what growth the next 5-10 years will bring!

New 9/11 Memorial coming to Huntington with pieces of rail track from under the WTC being included in it. I haven't heard where the actual memorial will be yet.
