Roanoke business park looking to add new companies

Posted: Updated:
WSLS (Roanoke) - Economic developers in Roanoke are expecting to see more activity in the city's business park.

The Roanoke Centre for Industry and Technology is seeing a big jump in prospective companies interested in calling the Star City home.

Economic Development Director Wayne Bowers said the city is hoping to make some announcements about companies moving into the business park in the near future.

"It's tough because there is a lot of competition. Communities throughout the country are looking for the same businesses," he said. "That hasn't changed, the competition is still there. But I'm optimistic because the economy is doing so much better."

Bowers said interest in the business park has really picked up over the last six months.
