The WVU Community Design Team will visit Rainelle April 15-17.
Rainelle, a town of 1,550 located in Greenbrier County, began as a lumber town and once was home to the largest hardwood mill in the world.
“Like a lot of small towns, Rainelle is facing the challenges of an aging infrastructure and a struggling business community, as well as attracting new people and retaining current community members,” said Jenny Selin, coordinator of the West Virginia University Community Design Team.
Even with those hurdles to jump, there are still plenty of areas the community can use as a foundation for redevelopment.
