Plans for how the city of Huntington can transform three post-industrial brownfield properties into usable and productive space were unveiled to the public Tuesday night during an open house at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena Conference Center.
The proposed plans include the addition of a baseball field, residential units, a hotel and space for offices and commercial development in an area that encompasses 27th Street to 20th Street between 3rd Avenue and the Ohio River and includes the former Ingram Barge, the McGinnis property and the ACF complex.
These plans are the culmination of a year-long community planning process that has involved interactive workshops and other public outreach initiatives to collect input from residents, which has been the first step in the city's Brownfields Planning and Redevelopment Project.
