In the earlier months following the 2016 Flood, Kanawha County Commissioner, James Young, presented an economic development grant opportunity, through WVU, to the former Clendenin town administration. It was approved, applied for, and the grant was secured and passed on to the new administration when they took office.
A variety of local residents were selected and appointed to the new Clendenin Planning Commission. They include: Russel Underwood, Kevin Clendenin, Kay Summers, Mayor Shana Clendenin, Jeanie Ladd Bird, Dave Knight, and Susan Jack.
On Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 they held their first meeting, which was facilitated by the WVU Law Department. An election of officers was conducted, and Kevin Clendenin was named President, and Jeanie Bird, Vice President. Discussions of timelines, scope, bylaws, and other issues took place. <See Agenda and other documents>
