"There's been no more investment in growth for my business here, not even an effort. I have had no option but to push my efforts in other counties where there is growth.
"Here (in Danville), I believe downtown, the commercial sector and other sectors of our economy are finally realizing what the home construction industry has been facing, and that is we're being impacted by what appears to be a cold shoulder that has been given to new industry."
Danville on verge of a rebound
The leader of the local effort to attract new industry believes Danville, once a model for industrial planning and growth, is on the verge of a rebound - one that will help boost home construction.
"We have been working very hard to attract new industry for the last several years, and that work is now yielding results," said Joe Gibson, head of the Boyle County Industrial Foundation.
