Positively Petersburg HubCAP Coordinator VISTA
The WV Community Development Hub’s HubCAP program has selected Petersburg, WV for technical support to implement community development projects deemed critical to the economic vitality of the area. HubCAP, The Hub’s Communities of Achievement Program, is designed to take communities to the next level in their community development efforts. The Petersburg HubCAP team, named Positively Petersburg, is comprised of local leaders in community and economic development. The team has chosen a set of projects and strategies to grow the Petersburg/Grant County economy, bolster community pride, and support incentives for service learning to engage area citizens in the community development process and grow our local economy. This VISTA project will be hosted by the Grant County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and support the Positively Petersburg team through strategic planning and volunteer recruitment.

Member Duties : The Positively Petersburg HubCAP VISTA project will include revitalizing and developing the Petersburg downtown area to be of more interest to both visitors and locals. This would include creating a biking/walking path, creating more green spaces, hosting more events, and adding art in the park and throughout town. By addressing economic opportunity and healthy futures the VISTA will support efforts to make Petersburg a place that people want to come to relax, have fun, and spend money in our local businesses, and in turn, will create a need for more jobs.
