Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore will come to the Dan River Region next week for a ribbon cutting at Berry Hill Industrial Park in southwestern Pittsylvania County.
The ribbon cutting for grading of a 133-acre pad at the park will take place at 2 p.m. March 23 at the 3,500-acre park along Berry Hill Road.
Danville Transit will provide free transportation to the event for the public from Faith Memorial Baptist Church at 7450 Martinsville Highway.
Officials believe grading of the site at Berry Hill will be a “game-changer” that will make the park more competitive.
The Danville-Pittsylvania Regional Industrial Facility Authority board voted Feb. 24 to approve a resolution accepting a $3.77 million bid from Haymes Brothers Inc. in Chatham for the grading project.
RIFA will pay for the project with money from the Virginia Tobacco Commission.
The contractor will have 360 days to complete the project that will make a level, buildable site for development.
