I would like to thank the Heart of Danville and the Third Street Development Corp. for hosting the informational forum on the proposed parking garage Monday night. Many important questions were asked and answered.
Based on the information which was presented Monday night and in prior discussions, I would like to urge our Board of Commissioners to put their full support behind the downtown parking garage and the related bond issue.
Please act now while a good anchor tenant is ready to commit to the Hub-Gilcher building, while city and state funds are available for the parking garage and before the condition of the building begins to be a limiting issue. Any investment comes with some inherent risks. Fortunately, we are now within a narrow period of time in which our risks and costs are reduced.
