Governor Ralph Northam has announced Industrial Revitalization Fund awards for three towns including Vinton, totaling more than $1.4 million. The fund helps to leverage local and private resources to aid redevelopment of deteriorated structures, creating a catalyst for long-term employment opportunities. The Gish Mill Redevelopment Project in Vinton will receive almost 470-thousand dollars. Once completed the mixed-use project is expected to create 37 full- and part-time jobs.
