The 248-mile stretch of US 29 that passes through Virginia is as a crucial North/South link that facilitates the movement of goods and people throughout the Commonwealth and serves as an opportune economic engine for the localities in which it passes. This multi-lane highway has been identified as a corridor of Statewide Significance by the Virginia Department of Transportation. 21 miles of US 29 traverses Nelson County, and this project aims to identify the economic development potential of that corridor.
The Nelson County 29 Economic Development Corridor Study is a response to the Board of Supervisors identified priorities of strategic economic development and corridor planning initiatives. With the help of 310 Ltd.’s expertise in economic development marketing and strategy development, this study will produce a detailed examination of the existing conditions and assets, potential deficiencies, targeted sectors for location and retention, suitable development sites, as well as extensive community input on needs and priorities.
