Tobacco Commission Helping With Henry County Mega Park


Danville, VA -- A mega park in Henry County is one step closer to bringing jobs to the area.

Monday morning, the Tobacco Commission approved funding $6.5 million towards the Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre mega park. That money will go towards site prep.

The mega park has announced that two nationally recognized companies are interested in the space. But they have to wait for a permit to be approved before they can start to prepare the site.

Henry County Administrator Tim Hall says this support from the Tobacco Commission will help prove they are serious about this project.

"It's just another link in the whole chain that we are trying to put together. Ultimately the chain will finish up and we will be ready to go," said Hall.

The Tobacco Commission recommended approval for over $12 million to mega park projects around the area.
