The Town of South Hill was awarded $59,251 from the Southside Economic Development Program on January 7, 2014 in order to perform due diligence studies at two (2) industrial parks: Hillcrest Business Park and Interstate Industrial Park. Both parks are in excellent condition and have been identified as very marketable properties in accordance with a recent site analysis performed by Timmons Group for the Virginia Growth Alliance. However, the site analysis identified the need for several due diligence studies in order to upgrade the parks to a Tier 4-5 rated site, which is the desired ranking for prospect readiness.
