BREAKING NEWS: Ground broken at business park
Commonwealth Crossing under development
Thursday, April 17, 2014
State political leaders gathered in Henry County on Thursday for a long-awaited groundbreaking ceremony at Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre.
Speakers at the event included Sen. Tim Kaine, Del. Danny Marshall and Congressmen Robert Hurt (5th District) and Morgan Griffith (9th District).
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved a long-sought grading permit for the business center on April 4.
Previously, the corps had been reluctant to issue the permit due to the lack of a company that has publicly committed to the site and prepared detailed blueprints. However, a company would not relocate to the site without the approved permit, creating a stalemate.
For the full story on the groundbreaking ceremony, see this site and Friday’s issue of the Martinsville Bulletin.
