Around West Point


The decision to create the electronic village was the result of a nearly two-year effort by the West Point Technology Committee, which recommended its creation. The West Point Technology Committee created in early 2000 by the West Point Town Council and was charged with developing vision statement of a hoped for future.

The committee:
Held town hall meetings to get citizen input
Met regularly to develop and evolve ideas, relationships, and priorities
Developed public and private alliances to ensure sustainability
Established committees to develop and complete projects in the following major areas:

  • Business
  • Education
  • Government
  • Citizen

In April 2000, Virginia's Secretary of Technology, Don Upson came to West Point to learn about the project. Immediately after the presentation, West Point was identified as one of the initial communities to participate in Virginia's e-Communities Task Force.

By September 2000, the project concept was developed to the point to form a non-profit corporation to represent the entire community (government, business, education, and citizen sectors). In January 2001, the non-profit was officially recognized by the federal government.

The official launch of www.westpointvirginia.org on February 7th, 2001 represents the vision, effort, and determination of the citizens of West Point, Virginia to transform themselves and their community for the digital age and remain "A great place to live, work and play".
