Ravenswood officials look to the future with marina, upgrades

RAVENSWOOD — The City of Ravenswood is preparing for its future by talking about adding a marina, adding new infrastructure and making water and sewer upgrades.

Mayor Josh Miller provided an update on all the projects in the works.

In January, Miller will make a presentation at the second city council meeting about the marina.

“It will have all the perspective drawings of the different aspects of the project. It’s been hand-drawn and it’s going to really pop and show what we plan to do,” Miller said.

Drawings and plans will be sent to Sens. Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin and Gov. Jim Justice to ask for funding for the project in hopes of bringing more tourists to the area.

The water and sewer project is underway and it will involve adding global positioning coordinates to all the water meters for easier and quicker access.

“This is new to a lot of folks and i’ve been very adamant about implementing this. It’s going to make us more efficient (by) knowing where these things are so there’s no guessing game,” Miller said.

Some sidewalk projects have been completed, but Miller said the city shifted its focus to the water and sewer project since the weather is getting colder.

Mountaineer Integrated Care, the company that’s working with the City of Ravenswood to potentially open a medical cannabis dispensary, is in the second round of its permit process.

“I feel very confident by the end of the year that we’ll find out about that. I’ve got a lot of hopes and ideas,” Miller said.
