News

HINTON, WV (WVNS) — At the most recent council meeting in Hinton, the mayor signed a new resolution.

The resolution is to provide safer streets within Hinton City Limits, such as adding bike lanes and providing safer areas for pedestrians.

The Complete Streets Resolution was presented by Active Southern West Virginia. Mayor Joe Blankenship said he fully supports the Complete Streets Resolution.

“It helps with beautification as well because the more new work you do as far as safety and things you accommodate there, helps beautify,” Blankenship said. “That’s something we’ve been very big on in our city for, I think, the last several years.”

Mayor Blankenship added the resolution will continue to help improve the city. It will provide safer areas for non-motorized vehicles.
