City of Bluefield conducting feasibility study, Exit 1

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The City of Bluefield received a $1 million grant with the Economic Development Administration to help further develop 12 acres of land at Exit 1, located off John Nash Boulevard by the Bluefield Area Transit.

The city is taking additional steps to bring more businesses to the area and it could mean more options for you to dine and shop.

The  city will conduct a feasibility test on the land to determine if a hotel could possibly be built on the land.

But if you are trying to envision what Exit 1 could possibly look like once the land is developed, you shouldn’t expect it to look similar to Exit 9 in Princeton.

“We don’t have the flat space of land like Exit 9,” said Jim Spencer, Community and Economic Development Director for the City of Bluefield. “It’s not going to be a similar kind of development that you see at Exit 9.”

Spencer says the study will begin in a few weeks and will take six months to be completed.
