Mine Lands Funding

The City of Prestonsburg and the Floyd County Fiscal Court are moving forward with a plan that is years in the making. During the recent SOAR Summit in Pikeville Governor Andy Beshear announced Abandoned Mine Lands funding for the purchase of the former Thunder Ridge racing track. The track, which has been empty for decades, has been a target for the county and city for years. Prestonsburg Mayor Les Stapleton says the former race track is perfect for development, since it already has utilities on-site, includes 58 acres, and is in an ideal location.
