Due to inclement weather, this event will be rescheduled in the near future.

The Kanawha City Community Association is teaming up with the City of Charleston Police Department and West Virginia Connecting Communities for the 2nd Annual Kanawha City Bike Appreciation Day.
The event is free to the public, and participants will be entered into a raffle for prizes donated by various businesses in Kanawha City.
Family Fun Events include bike and trike decorating, face painting, bike tune-ups, and a safety/challenge course. Food and drinks will be available from Charleston food trucks and vendors.
All children under the age of 15 will also receive a free bike helmet (while supplies last) thanks to our generous sponsors.
Please come out to show your support and enjoy the City of Charleston’s best urban bike path. More info found at www.kanawhacity.org
The event will start and finish at the 57th street trailhead, which is on the riverside of MacCorkle Avenue.
The much anticipated 42nd Street Improvement Project in Kanawha City is underway. An anticipated completion date is towards the end of May, 2017.
The entire 42nd street project improvement project is valued at $198,043.35.
Many thanks to Charleston Mayor Danny Jones and City Manager David Molgaard for their continued support of us in Kanawha City; Chris Knox, City Engineer who put out the bids and is supervising the project; Dave Gilmore with GAI Consultants for design and cost estimates for this project; to our City Council members for their support this project; and to the residents and business owners of Kanawha City who are impacted during the construction phase. Once completed, we all can be proud of the efforts in keeping Kanawha City a better place to live, shop and visit.
I wanted to post some great news. Tonight the Finance Committee and City Council voted and passed for approval the entire 42nd street project, $198,043.35. Bids are approved, and we are ready to talk and get buy in with surrounding property and business …owners. We will be breaking ground soon, and hope the weather cooperates until it is completed. I will advise as new details come to light.
I would like to take this time to also thank some folks behind the scenes who were instrumental in bringing this project to this point for us. First, I would like to thank Mayor Danny Jones and City Manager David Molgaard for their continued support of us in KC. I would also like to thank Chris Knox, City Engineer who put out the bids and followed up to get ready for this and who will supervise the project. Dave Gilmore with GAI Consultants for design and cost estimates for this project. Finally a great big thank you to our City Council folks for voting to support this project for KC.
Can’t wait to see it happen. Thanks to all.
Richard A. Burka
Councilman, Ward 18
