Property to be sold to Altavista for $1 million

During regular Board of Supervisors meeting, they dedicated a portrait of Hugh W. Rosser, a former supervisor of 52 years, more than any in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

 In two of three public hearings, one for a boundary line adjustment and one for the sale of real property, the Campbell County Board of Supervisors approved the sale of Campbell County’s Dearing Ford Business and Manufacturing Center to the Town of Altavista for $1 million. According to a report prepared by Frank J. Rogers, County Administrator, “The site represents a total of 50 acres, zoned for heavy industrial use. The Center includes 28 acres adjacent to the Wal-Mart, as well as an additional 21.75 acres on Dearing Ford Road, off of Route 29.”

The report continues, “Any business that may wish to locate in the Center would be eligible for Town and County incentives. The boundary line adjustment includes only industrial property that is presently undeveloped. No existing residential uses or existing businesses will be affected by the proposed boundary change.
