Indian Sites Delay Development

The discovery of American Indian sites near Bluefield could delay work on a new business, education and recreation center in the southwest Virginia city.

The native artifacts were found near the 680-acre site of the Bluestone Regional Business and Technology Park, where initial work was to begin next month on the multifaceted development.

Project manager Rick Chitwood said the start of work could be set back a few months while a study is conducted then sent to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

The Bluestone Regional Business and Technology Center will include a workforce training center, offices, hotels and a conference center. It will also have retail stores, residential units and a nine-hole golf course.
