Research Grant For City Of Prestonsburg

The City of Prestonsburg in Floyd County was selected to receive a $185,000 grant to study and develop the Levisa and Russell Forks River as a Blue Water Trail.Officials said this river ties multiple Eastern Kentucky cities together.”We’re talking about 100 miles from Elkhorn City to Louisa. That’s big,” said Les Stapleton Mayor of Prestonsburg.”We don’t really need a design. We don’t really need a plan. We just need to know where we can put them at,” Stapleton pointed out.From fishing to kayaking, the mayor says one of the most un-tapped tourism resources we have, is this river.
