Playground Work Aids Wheeling Development

Good for Wheeling officials for deciding to spend $143,000 on playgrounds. In addition to improving the quality of life in the city, they are making an important contribution to economic development efforts.

During its June 6 meeting, City Council is expected to adopt an ordinance clearing the way for a major project to improve the appearance and utility of four of the city’s 22 playgrounds.

Doing so will make Wheeling more appealing to people with families — and to the increasing number of businesses concerned with qualilty of life for their employees.
