STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- If you walk down Staunton's East Beverly Street, some signs in the window might catch your eye.
One says "future home of the Staunton Performing Arts Center," and it's right next door to the Dixie Theater.
According to the Center's website, they hope the new center will become a part of Staunton's cultural hub.
Bill Hamilton, the city's director of economic development, said the center will also help other downtown businesses.
"People who attend performances, concerts, lectures, and so forth in that facility will also be eating downtown, some of them will be staying downtown, so it pulls visitors into the heart of the community," said Hamilton.
Hamilton also said it would be good for Staunton to have a performing arts center of that size downtown.
