West Virginia University
landscape architecture students and alumni will come together for an alumni
charrette on March 1-2 to focus on creating a more vibrant landscape for
the city of Elkins. Their efforts will be centered on Railroad Avenue, including
the gateway corridor and open spaces along the corridor in the historic railyard.
The two-day charrette will be held in the Agricultural Sciences Annex on the WVU
Evansdale Campus in Morgantown.
Peter Butler, associate professor of landscape architecture in the
WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design and WVU Extension
Specialist, coordinates the experience, which has become an annual event for the
landscape architecture program in the Davis College’s
School of Design and Community Development.
