Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council seeks public input
PARKERSBURG — The Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council is encouraging public comment for the upcoming Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy.
The strategy-driven five-year plan for regional economic development is designed to build capacity and guide economic prosperity and resiliency. The regional plan covers Calhoun, Jackson, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wirt and Wood Counties.
A key part of the process is comment from the public on the region’s economic strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats and resiliency. A survey which takes a few minutes to complete is available at https://arcg.is/1m9jv4.
The site will remain open until March 25.
The regional council is a governmental planning and development agency for Calhoun, Jackson, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wirt and Wood counties, also known as Region V. The goal of the council and its Board of Directors is to maximize the opportunities for local communities and public service agencies to secure federal assistance for economic development, water and sewer system construction and expansion and public facility improvements, among others.
