Louisa County has been awarded more than $600,000 in state grants to conduct studies, engineering and complete a master plan for its new 700-acre regional business park, state officials recently announced.
The $600,850 grant is part of $800,000 in grants announced June 25 by GO Virginia. The grants are made for projects that are considered vital to diversifying regional economies in different regions of the state.
The money for the Louisa County project will pay for topographic and boundary surveys, traffic impact assessment, preliminary engineering reports, a geotechnical survey, a cultural resource summary and completion of the master plan for the park, which will be located near the Shannon Hill exit off Interstate 64.
The project is part of the program’s Region 9, which includes Fluvanna, Louisa, Madison and Orange counties and the city of Charlottesville.
