Progress In Charleston, Part 1
As Mayor Danny Jones approaches the end of his administration of governing the City of Charleston, several city leaders have compiled a dynamic list of the progress made in Charleston over the past 15+ years as a solid foundation for the future of West Virginia’s capital city.
From a visioning session with City Council and administration leaders more than a decade ago, the overarching goal has been to create Charleston as “the cultural, recreation and business capital of the Appalachian Mountains.” This first list, released today, is more of a headline version of progress across several areas toward that vision. More details will follow about public and private investments and developments tomorrow and special events and public art on Monday. Taken together, these will provide a more complete picture of the leadership of the Mayor, the stewardship of the team of city leaders during his administration and the active involvement of so many citizens who care deeply about our community.
