Current activity of the UKVEC/Upper Kanawha Valley
Health & Recreation Complex Committee
The Upper Kanawha Valley Enterprise Community (UKVEC) will promote the Health, Recreation and Social needs of the community by development of Eastern Kanawha County Health & Recreation Complex. The undisputed need for a community facility to address these needs is lacking in the community if just not available. The many services will consist of indoor swimming facilities, workout room facilities, meeting rooms, day care facilities for young and elderly, action sports facilities, senior sports facilities. The long range plans for river access for a fishing platform and mini marina will be considered. With the goal and purpose being to improve the health; thus, the quality of life for the citizens living and working in the Upper Kanawha Valley and surrounding areas.
The Mission of the Eastern Kanawha County Health & Recreation Complex is to develop the health, welfare, social and economic climate that makes the area an attractive place to live, work, and appreciate. The geographical area of concern is all that area east of the Charleston City limits, the area comprises approximately 22% of the population that resides in Kanawha County.
We have formed and established a community member’s special community to promote and develop the concept of the Health Complex. Our plans include the First annual Upper Kanawha Valley Home Coming. The event will be held on
August 14,15,16,17th at the Riverside High School, Quincy West Virginia.
We feel that the home coming theme will attract many former residents of the previously thriving community. The committee plans to use all available promotional venues to assure that the event is well publicized, TV, Radio, News Papers, social media will certainly be a cost effective method to promote the event to the world wide web participants.
We have contacted several potential sponsors and are seeking others. The success or failure depends greatly on the participation of the civic minded citizens and business establishments in the Eastern Kanawha Valley. We would offer the proper and required Brand Identity on all advertising for any and all sponsors
Plans are the first thoughts of our dream center.
