HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) - The Huntington Municipal Development Authority took
another step toward a major revitalization of land in the Highlawn area
Wednesday. The group approved funding for the purchase of 77.46 acres of
property between 5th Avenue and the Ohio River, known as the Highlawn
brownfields, for up to $4.5 million.   

This is what weve been talking about for some time and its now finally coming
together, said Huntington Mayor Steve Williams.   

Vacant, closed-down factories currently fill the large space in the Highlawn
neighborhood, which the city describes as "prime real estate." The city has
planned to redevelop the land for years, but struggled to acquire three
properties located there: the former Flint Group Pigments site, Ingram Barge
property and ACF complex.

Now, Mayor Williams says the plan is moving along and expects to close on the
Flint Pigments property as early as next week. Negotiations for the Ingram Barge
and ACF properties are still in the works, but are expected to be finalized this
