Virginia Port Authority

Staff continues to work actively with the Virginia Port Authority, leveraging its business assistance programs to assist companies such as High Liner Foods, Continental, Printpack and other port users with business expansions. The City was successful in obtaining a Port Authority grant in the amount of $638,292 for the Seafood Industrial Park West Bulkhead Improvements Project, now underway, with plans to apply for additional grant funding from this program in subsequent years for the Outer Harbor and other projects to refurbish and add capacity at the Seafood Industrial Park. Joint marketing activities with the Port Authority continue, including hosting site selection consultants to tour and learn about our regional port facilities, in collaboration with the Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance and with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership.
