St. Charles aldermen last week approved the $800,000 purchase of the VFW building downtown. It will take $200,000 more to demolish the building, but once that is done the city will have more space for parking downtown.

About this Article

St. Charles aldermen approved last week the $800,000 purchase of the VFW building downtown. It will take another $200,000 to demolish the building, but once that is done it will add more space to the existing VFW parking lot. The idea is to ease parking problems in that area of the downtown. Eventually, with more development, the land could be the site of a future parking garage.
