Thank you U.S. Rep. Ernie Fletcher and Sen. Jim Bunning for securing a $1.75 million request in the federal budget for a downtown parking garage. The Danville parking garage and redevelopment of the Hub-Gilcher property has long been a priority of the Danville-Boyle County community.
For over two years, our staff has been working with Ernie Fletcher to find a funding avenue for this project. Congressman Fletcher would be commended for this vision and leadership as downtown Danville is in a much better position to prosper economically through business retention, job creation and redevelopment of vacant buildings.
In addition to the evident job creation and business retention, limited public transportation will be added to the community, which couldn't come at a better time after the announced closing of our only downtown grocery store. Thank you Congressman Fletcher.
