Gary Facemyer, a Principal Project Manager based in our Charleston office, has been appointed by the Governor of West Virginia to the state's Complete Streets Advisory Board.
This newly created board is established to make recommendations to the Division of Highways and to counties and municipalities for updating design guidance, providing educational opportunities, and creating new measures to track the success of multimodal planning and design.
Tom Smith, WV Transportation Secretary and Division of Highways Commissioner, will chair the board.
Other members of the committee represent the American Planning Association, the Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority, the American Association of Retired Persons, the WV Healthy Lifestyle Coalition, the WV Statewide Independent Living Council, the WV Trucking Association, each congressional district, a state association of municipalities, and a bicycling organization.
Gary last served on the Governor's Blue Ribbon Commission on Highways. The commission's findings became the basis of Governor Jim Justice's $2.8 billion highway funding program.
