The city boasts two of these zones and continues to be among the top users in the state, consistently leveraging a significant share of grant dollars set aside to support growth of qualifying businesses. All of the city’s industrial and business parks are within these Zones as well as a significant number of Newport News businesses. For a map of the zones, visit NN_EnterpriseZoneMapFlyer-1.pdf (
