What will it be like to live in the New River Valley over the next twenty years?
Well, that depends on what happens now that a 3 year study on livability in the NRV is complete and ready to be acted upon.
More than 3,000 people from all over the New River Valley weighed in on which issues they’re most concerned about for the future of this region; including housing, transportation, energy, environment, and cultural assets which define this part of south western Virginia.
Population growth in Virginia slowed last year—but the commonwealth still outpaced the nation.
Between 2012 and 2013, Virginia’s population grew less than 1-percent, to nearly 8-point-3 million people. That’s the slowest growth in the state since the recession….but still higher than the national average.
Virginians will likely spend some time over next few weeks getting their paperwork together to complete their taxes. And if you’re thinking about having someone else do your taxes, new research says tax preparers and other service providers can sometimes benefit by making information about their services hard to read.
