Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority (SRRIFA)

SRRIFA at SVMP 02082019
Officials from Pittsylvania County, Town of Hurt, Town of Altavista, and City of Danville convened for the organizational meeting of the Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority (SRRIFA) on Friday, February 8, 2019 at Hurt Town Hall.  Upon adjournment, they assembled at the entrance sign to Southern Virginia Multimodal Park (SVMP) for a group photo. SRRIFA, now fully operational, was formed to attract and facilitate industrial/commercial development at SVMP in order to revitalize and stimulate our local economy.

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.
