Development at the VA Campus could help out with construction of the new hydro-electric plant at Lake Red Rock. At the recent meeting of the Knoxville Veteran’s Alliance Community Support Team, the idea of providing temporary housing at the VA Campus for the temporary construction jobs during the building of the plant was brought up by Vermeer Vice President Dell Collins. The few hundred construction workers would need short-term housing, which is limited in Marion County. Developer James Washington said that he very much appreciated the information and would look into it further.
