Community Vision

Steering Committee
A project Steering Committee has been developed for the KYOVA 2040  MTP and the Downtown Huntington Access Study.  Individuals or agencies participating in this Steering Committee include the  City of Huntington, Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce, Cabell-Huntington Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center, Marshall University, the development community, and other key stakeholders.  The intent of the Steering Committee is to serve in an advisory role, but with significant participation in visioning exercises and information feedback.   

“To create a Plan that enhances the safety, mobility, and appearance of the downtown Huntington area and its gateways while promoting quality development, connectivity, economic vitality, and protecting the community character.”
