Governor McAuliffe Designates NRV Commerce Park Virginia Business Ready Site
Governor McAuliffe announced the New River Valley Commerce Park has been designated as a Virginia Business Ready Tier 4 Site - one of the first four in Virginia with the program's launch in 2016. This means all infrastructure is in place or will be deliverable within one year and all permit issues have been identified or quantified. We are ready to help you site your project here.
The Virginia Business Ready Site Program (VBRSP), administered by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP), is a discretionary program established to help Virginia localities develop and market their existing industrial or commercial sites to prospective businesses, thus enhancing the Commonwealth’s infrastructure and promoting its competitive business environment. The governor's press release can be found here.
The First AEP Quality Site in the Appalachian Power Territory
The New River Valley Commerce Park has completed the certification program in 2015 for American Electric Power’s (AEP) Quality Site Program. McCallum Sweeney Consulting conducted a thorough analysis of the property, and certified the New River Valley Commerce Park as a Large Park. The Quality Site Program certifies industrial sites and industrial parks as ready for industrial development. Read the press release for more information here.
