The New River Valley Commerce Park, which is an AEP certified site, received support for its efforts to market the park to industries with a $10,000 grant. Plans for the grant include marketing efforts to expand the visibility and awareness of the park among prospective industries and site selection consultants. Over the last year, interest in the NRV Commerce Park has increased including inquiries from 11 prospective tenants and site visits by three companies.
