Clarksburg Finished All Three Brownsfield Projects

Monday on 5 News, we told you the Save-A-Lot in Adamston finally opened it's doors to the community. But that's not the only development in the area. It's just one of the three brownsfield Projects. And as of this week, they all have been completed and are open for business.
It's crazy to see all of these areas being put to use because about a year ago all three places had nothing there.  The Save-A-Lot took the longest to get up and running because of a few different complications the old glass factory left. Many of you may know Oliverio's Peppers and that expanded from a foundry site. The last is now called Valley Supply, a 75,000 square foot facility that used to be a junk yard. The goal of these projects are to create an environment of business and employment and that's exactly what they're doing.
"Probably over 150 jobs to start out with and that's the biggest goal of the brownsfield is to try to develop property and put jobs in the community. Clarksburg has been successful in doing what we've been asked of," said Sam Lopez, Clarksburg City Council Member.
"And by creating jobs we're making it more appetizing and inviting for people to come here. Work, play, and live. And that's our goal. That's our main goal as a municipality, to create an environment in our city that people want to be here," said Patsy Trecost, Mayor of Clarksburg.
There are no more brownsfield projects left in Clarksburg, but officials said they won't stop looking to improve and develop.
