Economic development has changed. What used to be a simple option of tax incentives and transportation access has evolved to include 'soft' areas, such as quality of life. Here in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia, we have an abundance of options for all phases of economic development.
The Northern Panhandle is on the cusp of an economic evolution.
