For many years, the City of Danville owned its welcome center. But in 2008, the ownership was transferred over to the Virginia Tourism Corporation, while the city continued to oversee its every day operations.
“At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, the council unanimously approved retaking over as the owner’s of the welcome center. Which will give city leaders the freedom to move forward with future potential expansion and improvement projects.
Larking said the city has ramped up its tourism efforts in recent years, especially as residents and visitors prepare for the opening of Caesars Virginia in 2024.
