PARKERSBURG, West Virginia — Vienna officials plan to clean up a former Johns Manville plant site and redevelop it.

Media outlets report that the Wood County Commission approved the city's petition to annex the property this week.

Vienna Mayor Randy Rapp says the city has applied for grants totaling about $400,000 to clean up the property.

Rapp says the city plans to convert part of the property to green space for public use, including walking and biking trails. City officials hope to attract new development to the industrial section.
