Construction Projects on the Rise in Blacksburg

Posted: Updated:
Construction Projects in the Town of Blacksburg are going up.

Town building officials say so far for the first 4 months they have seen almost $70 million dollars in construction projects is a record.

"That's definitely a pretty big number on increase we've got pretty close to that number before with 50 million in construction value but this is a record for us," Cathy Cook Blacksburg Town Official said.

The reason town officials say more people are coming to the area to retire as well as graduates from Virginia Tech are staying after graduation.

"Blacksburg is not anti development we just want to right type of development and people want to be here it's a hot market" Mayor Ron Rordam said.
