As its Nov. 30 deadline draws near, Third Street Development Corporation will take its case for a parking garage to the people today at 5:30 p.m. at a Hub-Gilcher building open house.
The corporation needs the Danville City Commission to make a commitment to issue bonds for the garage or its members said that they will lose their latest tenant prospect. The tenant has told them that they have until Nov. 30 to get the commitment from the city.
Commissioners met at 8:30 a.m. today in executive session to discuss the matter, but no decision was made.
Mayor John W.D. Bowling has said that he wants to wait until the city receives a $1.75 million federal grant before he commits to selling bonds for the garage. The grant would be official when the federal budget is signed, which could be as late as February.
Commissioners Jamey Gay and Terry Crowley have said that they felt the city could make a commitment before then.
