Martinsburg’s Trendy Revitalization

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

Martinsburg, WV- The Panhandle Urban Renewal Board has announced an ambitious plan to redevelop Martinsburg’s downtown with the support of many local businesses and private donors.  The plans include widening roads to allow for more street parking, upgrading the street lights, and rezoning portions of the old industrial area to light commercial, with incentives available for new businesses, and residential.  Building has begun on mid-to-high end town homes and apartments within walking distance of the planned shops and restaurants.  More of the “New Oldtown” will be open in early 2018.
