The Industrial Development Authority (IDA) works in cooperation with the City and its Economic Development and Tourism Office to promote and facilitate redevelopment activities in the River District by the purchase, renovation, and subsequent lease or sale of real estate site throughout the District. The IDA also provides significant opportunities for industrial and commercial development in the City and in Danville-Pittsylvania County Regional Industrial Facility Authority owned parks by providing competitively priced lease/purchase arrangements with companies locating in the Danville region.
The IDA issues tax-exempt bonds to provide long-term financing to promote industry and develop trade by inducing manufacturing, industrial, governmental and commercial enterprises and institutions of higher education to locate in and remain in the Commonwealth and in the City and further the use of Virginia’s agricultural products and natural resources, either through the increase of commerce, or through the promotion of safety, health, welfare, convenience or prosperity.
