PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Pineville city leaders in Bell County are trying to recruit new businesses to downtown.
The Main Street Program Director is working with the Kentucky Small Business Development Center to improve business in the area.
A national retail consultant recently visited the town and offered assessments to individual businesses. He also helped the leaders devise a plan to get new businesses in the area.
"So we're working with property owners and building owners to help make Pineville a more attractive place for prospective businesses to come into town," said Jacob Roan.
