Committee chooses plan for Veterans Hall

Veterans will have both floors at front of building

by Geoff Gillette

Architects will be moving forward with the design and planning for the renovation and expansion of the Veteran's Hall in downtown Danville, after the Veterans Building Steering Committee approved a preliminary plan Monday.

Over the past several weeks, the committee has looked at four different plans for the historic structure, all designed to accommodate not just the veterans but also the town's senior programs and rental uses such as weddings and classes.

At its April 13 meeting, the committee needed to make a choice between Schemes A and D. Scheme D is the plan the veterans asked for that would put all of their offices and facilities solely on the second floor of the building. The seniors would have areas on the first floor as well as some storage.
