The Authority shall be organized in accordance with Title 15.2, Chapter 64 of the Code of Virginia, 1950, as amended, also known as the Virginia Regional Industrial Facilities Act (the "Act"), as the same may be amended from time to time. The Authority shall also comply with all lawful directives as may be mutually agreed to between the City of Danville, Virginia and the County of Pittsylvania. The general purpose of the Authority shall be to enhance the economic base of the City and the County by developing, owning, and operating one or more facilities on a cooperative basis involving such localities, including without limitation the specific purpose to develop The Cyber Park of Danville and Pittsylvania County and to develop one or more parcels in both the City and the County as regional industrial parks and for additional purpose of future development of other industrial properties and other reasons as permitted by the Act and as agreed upon by the Member Localities. The Authority shall have any and all powers under the Act, as the same may be amended from time to time.
