CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center is quickly coming to fruition, as the city continues to secure funding for the $15 million project.
“We’re probably about 45 percent completed,” City Manager Martin Howe said. “We do anticipate the soft grand opening will happen in late spring 2018.”
Wednesday, the city of Clarksburg was presented a donation of $250,000 from the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation to renovate and restore the historic downtown landmark.
“Dominion Energy continues to place a priority on giving-back and supporting this area,” Pipeline Operations Vice President Brian Sheppard said in a press release. “We also recognize what a historic landmark the Robinson Grand has been, and we want to ensure its success for generations to come.”
Last week’s economic development announcement of a potential $84 billion investment is a game changer for West Virginia, Shale Crescent USA and the Mid-Ohio Valley.
The memorandum of agreement marks a number of monumental projects that will accelerate economic growth for the Mid-Ohio Valley for many years to come.
It is hard to express how exciting this is. The impact of this investment by China Energy Investment Corporation will have far-reaching implications, including additional investments from a variety of downstream industries.
We believe it was only a matter of time before an announcement like this occurred due to the advantages of our region: the shale crescent of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Our advantages include:
Last week’s big announcement of a potential $83.7 billion investment from a China-owned energy company for shale gas and chemical manufacturing projects in West Virginia — assuming any or part of it comes to fruition — signals things will be different in West Virginia.
The potential investment and the new manufacturing, jobs and revenue that could come with the memorandum of understanding signed between China Energy and the West Virginia Department of Commerce would be a huge boon for a region that could use a big economic boost.
Charleston, W.Va. (November 9, 2017) – Anne Blankenship, executive director of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association (WVONGA), issued the following statement today following the announcement by the West Virginia Department of Commerce that China Energy Investment Corporation Limited will invest $83.7 billion in shale gas development and chemical manufacturing projects in West Virginia:
“WVONGA is thrilled to learn about the $83 billion investment to be made in West Virginia by China Energy. The investment will support the growth and development of natural gas end uses for which we have been advocating for many years.
Natural gas powered electric generation facilities, natural gas liquid storage, and the petrochemical manufacturing industry have all been part of our policy initiatives and we are excited to hear that a huge investment is planned to further those developments.
By creating additional uses for the enormous amount of natural gas that we are sitting on in West Virginia, and using those resources here, we not only grow our natural gas industry, we grow the manufacturing industry, jobs and state revenue.
West Virginia is primed for this development. We have one of the largest natural gas fields in the world, a strong work-force, proximity to a large portion of the nation’s population, and a rich history in manufacturing. We are ready.”
