HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A neighborhood redevelopment project in Huntington is moving forward.

Residents were invited to a public meeting Tuesday night at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena to kick off a planning and redevelopment project for former industrial properties in the Highlawn neighborbood, along with other sites in the city. The city of Huntington says in a news release that the goal is to have a strategy for the project completed by mid-2017.

Last year the city received $600,000 in grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for planning and assessing brownfields sites.

Brownfields properties are sites that can be redeveloped but have potential environmental issues. They include former industrial sites, abandoned buildings and vacant properties.
