West Virginia Community Development Hub leads a Turn This Town Around community meeting in Matewan.
Matewan is one of two West Virginia towns selected as part of the “Turn this Town Around” project. Grafton is the other town. Over the next year, Matewan will be transforming itself into a more vibrant community. A community meeting on April 24, 2014 gave residents a chance to discuss what projects they want to see done to transform Matewan. Collaborators on the “Turn this Town Around” project include West Virginia Focus Magazine, West Virginia Community Development Hub, and West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
