New Kent County, Virginia  Economic Development Authority

Business Benefits

Business goes where it is wanted and New Kent County wants your business. We understand that more is required than just wanting your business—we must provide the environment in which business can grow and prosper. Quality government services, reasonable regulations, and a fair and equitable taxing climate are essential. Local government must act as a partner with business rather than “just another problem”. A clear demonstration of New Kent’s desire for commercial/industrial development is the County’s major investment in public utility services. Because of this, public water and sewer are now available along the entire Route 33 Industrial Corridor, the Courthouse area and all four I-64 Interchanges. Full details of the utility system are found in the infrastructure section of this site.
