Ranson City Council gives final approval to plan for gas tank farm

RANSON, W.Va. - Ranson City Council members gave final approval Tuesday night to a plan for a four-acre liquefied petroleum gas tank farm along Universal Forest Products Drive.

The Thompson Gas facility would be used to store liquefied petroleum gas before it is transported to customers, City Manager Dave Mills said.

Mix of commercial and residential development planned near Curry Road, W.Va. 115

RANSON, W.Va. - A mix of commercial and residential development is being planned for a 274-acre property at Curry Road and W.Va. 115 in Ranson, city officials said Tuesday night.


The project, known as Clay Hill Farm, also would set aside about 30 to 40 acres for community use, City Manager Dave Mills said following a Ranson City Council meeting.

An old restored farmhouse also is on the property, Mills said.

Mills said he could not give specifics about the commercial and residential use since the project is in its early stages. The development would have more commercial development than residential, and will have a community feel, Mills said.

Ranson City Council members gave preliminary approval to the plan Tuesday night.
