Rock Creek Development Park: The Gateway to Growth and Revitalization in Southern WV

On October 27, West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin announced that GAI has been retained by the State as the economic development, infrastructure, and land use master planner for the 12,000-acre Hobet surface mine site—newly renamed Rock Creek Development Park. Dubbed the “gateway to growth and revitalization in southern West Virginia,” Rock Creek Development Park will environmentally restore and repurpose the 50-year-old former coal mining site to new uses and point the State forward into new forms of economic growth, jobs, and community.
