092513 Vision for The Hole.jpg

Beckley businessman Dan Bickey is suggesting that a memorial statue of the late Senator Robert C. Byrd be placed in the center of the section on the corner of Neville Street and Heber Street, surrounded by decorative pavement and benches. For the other section on Heber Street, Bickey suggested a rain garden, a flag and a planting area. The area has been referred to as ‘the hole.’ The property was left vacant after a fire destroyed several businesses.
