HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A permit has been approved for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to build a new VA regional clinic in Huntsville.

The permit for the $14.7-million project was approved on Feb. 7. It will be built at 500 Markaview Road NW, across from Butler High School. Building permits were approved by the city several weeks ago.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle confirmed the project and said the VA has been looking at the area for several years. "We have been working on it and where it should go, what it should entail, and it's finally come together," Battle said.

The complex will house a 47,800 square-foot facility. It will have a 393-space parking lot and provide mental health, radiology, phramacy, primary care and specialty care facilities.

Non-profit group Still Serving Veterans said there are more than 50,000 veterans in North Alabama that could access this facility instead of driving to Birmingham or Tuscaloosa. They said the project can't start soon enough.

Officials said a groundbreaking has been planned for April 17. They expect the clinic to open in Fall 2015.
