The Route 1 Widening Project may be the most visible sign of the transformation taking place in “New Woodbridge.” However, this massive project represents just a third of the $1.5B of public/private infrastructure investment that is setting the stage for renewed economic vitality in this area, said Woodbridge District Supervisor Frank Principi. Area business leaders are invited to learn about emerging opportunities during a Business Networking Reception October 17, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Harbour Grill, 13188 Marina Way, Woodbridge, VA.
Co-hosted by Supervisor Principi and the Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association, this free event provides an overview of projects in the area, including information on the recently-approved North Woodbridge Small Area Plan. Attendees can network and speak with senior Prince William County officials from departments such as transportation, development services and planning. Additionally, the County’s new Economic Development Director Christina Winn, instrumental to bringing Amazon HQ2 to Northern Virginia, will highlight her plans for Eastern Prince William.
“I have always said that private investment follows public investment. The County has spent the last several years building out our roads, schools, sidewalks, utilities and parks. We have enhanced transit services, and been a leader in the effort to launch Fast Ferry service,” said Supervisor Principi. “We have laid the groundwork. Now, we are inviting our business community, along with those considering a future here, to learn how they can tap into the full potential of New Woodbridge.”
The Business Networking Reception will also feature hot appetizers and a cash bar with special pricing. Free to attend; registration is required at bit.ly/woodbridgebiznet. For questions, call 703-792-4646.
