The West Virginia Region XI Planning and Development Council is one of eleven regional planning and development councils in West Virginia and one of 73 local development districts in Appalachia.¬†Falling under the BHJ umbrella, Region XI’s primary role is to facilitate regional initiatives accross Brooke and Hancock counties through economic development, infrastructure improvements, and regional collaberation.

To achieve these goal, BHJ has planning and development initiatives across Brooke and Hancock counties including brownfield remediation, economic development, housing, workforce development, and infrastructure improvements including water, wastewater, stormwater, and broadband. BHJ routinely updates its Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) to aline with regional planning and development changes across Brooke and Hancock counties.

The most recent CEDS can be viewed below:

BHJ is also in the process of updating its 20-year county wide Facilities Plan for Brooke and Hancock counties. The most recent County Wide Facilities Plan, completed in 2000, proposed 26 water and wastewater projects for completion estimated to costs near $50,000,000. Since 2000, BHJ has successfully leveraged Federal, State, and local funding opportunities to have 24 of these proposed projects complete or under active development/construction. BHJ has helped bring over $200,000,000 in Federal and State infrastructure funding to the local communities to support water, wastewater, and stormwater initiatives.
