Pad Ready Site Public Meeting April 7, 2022

There was a public meeting held on Thursday, April 7, 2022 in the cafeteria of Alleghany High School.  Engineers Tim Davey and Bryan Cichocki of the Timmons group provided an update on the Alleghany Regional Commerce Center pad ready site in Low Moor.  This $6M project is to attract businesses who will offer employment and increase the region’s tax base.  

The 100 acres site is a significant land holding the Industrial Development has taken responsibility for.  It is all about marketability and this site is at a Tier 2 which is harder to attract a business investment than a Tier 3 or Tier 4.   A big advantage of this site is it’s publicly owned and zoned for economic development which makes it a Tier 2.  Once this becomes a graded site and ready to go it will become a Tier 4.  This site was prioritized as the number one site from the Alleghany Highlands Economic Development Corporation’s business plan.  The AHEDC will be marketing this project for prospective customers once it is under full construction with bulldozers.  We plan to utilize aerial images and progress reports as we move forward with this project.  Stay tuned as we break ground this coming June.
