RAINELLE, WV (WVVA) -

The Town of Rainelle today held what they are calling the Rainelle Resilience Workshop. 

The purpose of the workshop is to help revitalize the infrastructure of Rainelle. It started with lunch at Fruits of Labor, following by a short bus tour through the town to look at areas in need of revitalization. 

Mayor Andy Pendleton says that representatives from FEMA and the EPA were along for the ride. On the agenda was a discussion of improved sidewalks and the continuation of the Midland Walking Trail into Rainelle.

"I want to improve it where it comes into Rainelle on Main Street, so we can pick up tourism and people coming and enjoying themselves and people shopping and eating with us.. and hey we're Rainelle," said Pendleton.

The Rainelle Resilience Workshop continues tomorrow from 9 until 5.
