Support Letters

Ranson and Charles Town obtained the support from the two-dozen entities involved in the Council by making collaboration the cornerstone of the project from the beginning. The community knows that community involvement, project transparency, and multi-stakeholder participation is the best approach for overcoming barriers, building momentum, raising funds, and attracting investors and redevelopers.

The list of partners are not mere outside observers, but real participants:
  • American Public University is building an entire campus in and around the corridor
  • Boys and Girls Club has located on a corridor brownfield
  • Charles Town Parks and Recreation Commission has focused its park planning in the corridor
  • CORE have adopted the corridor as a central mission
  • MPO has included the corridor transportation infrastructure as a top regional priority
  • NAACP has been the spark plug for blight removal and parks/recreation development in the corridor
  • Northern West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center has made the corridor one of its pioneering efforts
  • West Virginia regional economic development district has made the corridor a top priority in its comprehensive economic development strategy
