Taskforce Continues Knoxville VA Campus Discussion

Dialogue continued this week with officials and legislators on transitioning the VA Campus. Knoxville Mayor Harv Sprafka says members and advisors of the Knoxville VA Taskforce met with Congressman Leonard Boswell Wednesday, stressing the importance of having a community-based outpatient clinic, or C-BOC in Knoxville and that it would like to be located near Knoxville Hospital & Clinics. Sprafka adds they also met with international marketing firm Jones Lang LaSalle, which is being retained by the Department of Veterans Affairs to help market and find outside entities to occupy the campus.
