For a city that is designed fairly well Hal Greer Blvd has always been something that never made sense compared to the rest of the layout. Although it is still better than that other entrance I think on 29th that gives Jefferson a run for it's money although it's gotten a little better too.

A new revitalization plan underway in Huntington. Looks like this one is a little more well rounded.

It does sound like this plan has more stakeholders involved, so hopefully that will create better ideas and create more urgency to get things moving.

As Dr. Gilbert is quoted in the piece, the new College of Business building, to be built on 4th Avenue, will hopefully be a catalyst for that portion of downtown. My first thought related to that is that 4th Avenue should finally be built up as the link between campus and downtown. New housing stock of townhouses, apartments and condos, the much needed downtown grocery store, a recreation outlet, an outdoor recreation component, a good mix of business and retail, etc. Even if this means taking down some of the existing structures.

I agree. With everyone attached to this and all of the other positive things happening in Huntington right now, this plan might actually get somewhere. The new business school and something going in on the Old Upperclassman lot would be a huge catalyst for 4th Ave.

Does anyone know what’s going on at the backside of the mall? Are they possibly building a bridge across the Mud river for another access point?

I think the area that's been roped off is being used as an access point for the bridge work related to the interstate expansion.

Okay, that makes sense as to what’s going on. Thank you.

Anything new of note? I skimmed through it but couldn’t see any new developments. I might be just really bad at going through the site haha.
