What's this? Williamsburg Village (40th and Old Cheney) is getting a new building? A new $14 million Veterans Affairs Regional Office will begin construction in June. That's great news, tempered by the fact the project probably costs taxpayers much more than it should thanks to it being located in Williamsburg Village.
What's the deal with Williamsburg? I'm always surprised how many vacant lots remain in the development. I can't help but think that the project missed several opportunities to be much niftier than it has turned out to be. Or maybe this slow growth -- going on, what, 20 years now? -- is intentional.
In other Williamsburg "news", I like the rumor that the Hy-Vee is planning an expansion. That's "our" Hy-Vee so I'm always on the lookout for improvements.
