Danville ”Big Development” Announcement Set

Danville ”Big Development” Announcement Set

It looks as though we will know Wednesday what the big development is that is coming to Danville.  Mayor Rickey Williams, Jr. says he will announce details of the ‘’big development’’ at 9 o’clock Wednesday morning (August 21st) at the Robert E. Jones Municipal Building.

The Mayor had mentioned during a meeting earlier that over sixty parcels of land were being assembled for a large project.  But he did not release further details.  There has been a lot of speculation that land being acquired through the Danville Land Bank north of Main Street and west of Gilbert Street recently involves a project for Carle.  But there has been no confirmation from Carle.

Wednesday is also the final day that development companies can submit their plans for the new Danville casino.  But those companies have until the end of the day Wednesday to submit those proposals.
