Update on Multi-Purpose Center in Mercer County

MERCER COUNTY (WVVA) -- An idea for a multi-purpose center that's been in the works in Mercer County for several years is getting closer to becoming a reality.

The latest step is finding a suitable and affordable site for the project.

Possible locations for the center were narrowed down at the last Mercer County Development Authority meeting. Those locations include property at Leatherwood in Bluefield and property off of Exit 14 in Gardner.

Board member Marc Meachum says the Exit 14 location is less costly, but nothing has officially been decided.

Meachum says the center could be used for a number of things such as meetings and concerts. He says it will also have an equestrian component to host horse shows year round.
