SRRIFA was formed in late 2018 as a regional intergovernmental partnership with one mutually beneficial goal in mind — commercial and industrial development of Southern Virginia Multimodal Park (SVMP) in Hurt.
SVMP is Hurt’s foremost economic development priority. With recent designations as a Virginia Enterprise Zone and a federal Opportunity Zone, the property has been approved for nearly $100,000 in Virginia Economic Development Partnership VBAF grant funding to assist with aesthetic and/or other site improvements.
We are open to a myriad of possibilities for the SVMP. Based on new insights in 2018, emphasis is placed on assembly, light manufacturing, and logistics. We envision the site as a future nexus of regional and/or global commerce.
