Rockbridge County’s 2016 New Year's Resolution: We resolve to fill the vacant industrial buildings in our Natural Bridge Industrial Park. The Bridgeworks, LLC building is 40,400 square feet of manufacturing and/or warehouse space, and the Zak, LLC building is 29,736 square feet of manufacturing and/or warehousing space. 

August Update & Focus:  A successful joint business effort between two of our local entrepreneurs has led to the occupancy of the Zak, LLC building. This venture adds to our County’s cluster of HVAC-related businesses.

The Bridgeworks building has been shown to several potential occupants and the Office of Community Development will continue to work closely with the building owner to fill the vacancy. 

Rockbridge County has been actively working with our local tourism office to inventory our outdoor assets. The Braided Trail project is a joint effort with multiple agencies to catalog and market our existing and future outdoor recreational assets. This effort includes designating a section of the James River in Rockbridge County as part of the James River Water Trail.

We have also been working closely with our local Chamber of Commerce and the Cities of Lexington and Buena Vista to market the region under the tag line “Live it. Love it. Work it.”
