It’s Easy to Review Wheeling Plan

The last time Wheeling’s comprehensive plan was amended, in 1997, reviewing the proposal for it was not easy. Those interested in it had to go to the City-County Building, request a printed copy, then go home and review it.

Looking at what local leaders have in mind for the future is much easier now. Wheeling residents and businesspeople should take advantage of that.

A draft of the plan can be reviewed on our website, Simply go to the Top Headlines section and click on the story headlined “Draft for Comprehensive Plan Out for Public View.” A?PDF copy of the 86-page document can be downloaded from there.

Bear in mind the plan is important. It will serve as a blueprint for progress in Wheeling for years to come.

Two public meetings, at noon and 6 p.m. Monday, are scheduled to discuss the proposal. They will be held in West Virginia Northern Community College’s B&O Building. If you are interested in Wheeling’s future, read the plan and attend one of the meetings.
