Amenities and Recreation Pave the Way For a Renaissance in Pulaski

Pulaski County, VA – Pulaski is again making headlines in Cardinal News’s new piece titled “Pulaski Reinventing Itself.”

Darlene Burcham is Pulaski’s town manager and is quoted in the article saying,

“I think after COVID, we and other communities were pleasantly surprised that people started looking at us,” she said. “Some of the developers that have purchased land in our community are from outside the area. We have a more reasonable cost of living and doing business right now than some of the communities to our north. And so people are looking at us as an attractive place to make their home or to develop their business. And we’re going to take advantage of it.”

The article explores new development and the town’s new downtown attractions. These include a large splash pad for warm weather fun and the new Pulaski Mountain Bike Park that opened on October 12th.

Cardinal News quotes Pulaski County’s Chief Administrative Officer Jonathan Sweet regarding his take on what makes the town so special saying,

“It’s an amazing place full of amazing people, a rural community that offers everything you would expect a rural community to offer, and so much more. We are creating new jobs, building the housing stock, and shaping a community for that generation of working professionals.”
