TORNADO TOWN
Advocates seek funding to build energy-efficient housing in tornado-stricken Kentucky town

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 23, 2014 4:11 AM EDT
WEST LIBERTY, Ky.


An initiative started by former President Bill Clinton could support efforts to build energy-efficient housing in an eastern Kentucky town hit by a tornado.

Advocates for the community of West Liberty plan to be in Denver this week for the Clinton Global Initiative America meeting. Bobby Clark, a consultant in the reconstruction project, says the meeting will offer a chance to ask potential donors to help the town recover from the 2012 tornado.

Clark is with Midwest Clean Energy Enterprise of Lexington. He says the goal is to raise $500,000 to build four energy-efficient, single-family homes in West Liberty for low-income residents displaced by the tornado. The houses will include solar and geothermal systems.

A kickoff fundraiser for the project was held last week in Louisville.
