Clarksburg studies glass plant site for redevelopment
CLARKSBURG, W.Va. -- Clarksburg officials are studying the potential redevelopment of a former glass plant site.
Redeveloping the former Anchor Hocking plant site is a natural next step in the city's redevelopment of brownfields, City Manager Martin Howe told The Exponent Telegram.
Brownfields are former industrial properties.
Howe said the site's current owner is interested in developing the glass plant site if the right use is found for it.
City officials plan to meet with staff at the Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance in Morgantown this week to discuss potential redevelopment of the 17-acre property.
A partnership with the owner would be the best approach, Mayor Cathy Goings said.
