The El Paso County Veterans Services Office will move next week to a new location.
"This move is not about the office, it's about providing better access to the services our veterans need," said Jim Tackett, Veterans Services Manager. "Our current location downtown has accessibility issues for veterans with disabilities. It's a block from a parking garage and there are very few spaces for the disabled along the street. At the new location, people will be able to park right in front and walk in the door. I've heard a lot of positive feedback about this move from the veterans we've seen in the past few weeks."
The new location will be at 5850 Championship View, Suite D, which is just south of Barnes Road between Powers Boulevard and Tutt.
The old office will close at noon on Thursday, Feb. 23 and remain closed through Monday, Feb. 27. The new office will open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
