Westport site to house VA Clinic

An assessment by Stratton VAMC staff identified one main issue with the building, Potter said, and Moore has yet to respond with a plan to rectify it.

"Once that issue has been addressed, we can go forward with a site inspection," said Potter. "Assuming all is well, we'll get down to the final phases."

The contract would set up a lease agreement with the owner, meaning the property would remain in private hands and part of the local tax roll.

If a contract were to be signed within the next few weeks, Potter said the building could potentially be ready to open as a clinic before the end of the year.

"We're just really looking forward to getting up and running and serving the local area," Potter said.
