DANVILLE, Va. — Danville will seek $742,875 from the Virginia Tobacco Commission for a project at the Southern Virginia Multimodal Park in northern Pittsylvania County.
City Council voted 8-0 to seek the funding during its meeting Tuesday night.
The grant would come with a required $742,875 match from the city for a total of about $1.48 million.
The project at the park, totaling about $3.24 million, would be a joint project between Pittsylvania County and the town of Hurt, where the park is located. It includes preparing a 50-acre pad in a lot at the park to market to potential industries.
Site improvements would include demolition of an existing slab, clearing debris, grading, erosion control, installing a storm drainage system, and other improvements.
The multimodal park is owned by the Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority. The authority includes a cost- and revenue-sharing agreement between Pittsylvania County (61%), Danville (35%) and Hurt (4%).
The money Danville would provide would be its share of the costs.
