CHESTER, W.Va. (AP) - The owner of a former pottery plant in Chester has received a $2 million loan from the state to redevelop the property.

The Business Development Corporation of the Northern Panhandle plans to use the loan from the West Virginia Economic Development Authority to construct a 30,000-square-foot spec building on the site.

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/1YYBhb6) reported that assistant director Marvin Six announced the loan at a recent meeting of the Rock Springs Redevelopment Task Force.

A cleanup of the property was completed in 2012. But development efforts have been hindered by lead contamination of the riverbank.

Six said cleanup of the riverbank is set to start in the first quarter of this year.
