As a brief introduction…Hurt is a congenial, family-oriented town of approximately 1,300 citizens located at the northern end of Pittsylvania County. We are separated from the adjoining larger town of Altavista only by the Roanoke (Staunton) River. We are home to people of all ages with a considerable range of demographics and interests.
While Hurt is predominantly residential at this time (a result of the economic downturn and the departure of manufacturing since the turn of the century), we eagerly desire and are actively pursuing economic development/community revitalization as a top priority. Our focus is on development of the Southern Virginia Multimodal Park, and considering the challenges that most localities face in effecting commercial growth, our town recognizes the importance of taking a regional approach.
Thus, it is our pleasure to be the host locality for the newly formed Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority (SRRIFA) in partnership with adjacent localities. Hurt also maintains active membership in both the Virginia Municipal League and the Danville-Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce.
