Mtn. Talk Monday: Whitesburg Dowtown Revitalization and Reinvestment

In this episode, five University of Virginia students in the Master’s of Urban and Environmental Planning program report on their assessment of the existing conditions within a roughly one-mile corridor within downtown Whitesburg, Kentucky. The assessment lays out a foundation for Whitesburg to participate in the Environmental Law Institute’s BRIGHT program. The students inventory assets and challenges, highlights resources, and offers a palette of design opportunities, and strategies for community directed corridor revitalization.
