Knoxville Partnering with Marion County to Buy Former VA Campus
KNOXVILLE, Iowa -- The City of Knoxville is partnering with the Marion County Board of Supervisors to negotiate the purchase of the Veteran’s Administration campus. The facility mostly closed down in 2004, with a few buildings open up until a couple years ago. “We’re currently working with a GSA right now to acquire the property," said Knoxville Mayor Brian Hatch. “They are working with the state historical preservation organization right now to try to clear some of those channels in order to make sure if we do acquire the property that we're able to do what we want with it.”
