CAPE CORAL, FL - The area's newest VA clinic is months away from opening and some are questioning, where are all the businesses that city leaders said would come with the new medical facility.

Christy Vogt, who heads up the city's economic development office, says economic change is on the way.

Vogt tells WINK News, she has been in contact with a number of businesses, including hoteliers and retailers who are just waiting for the doors of the clinic to open before they make their move.

On the flipside, existing businesses in the area are waiting for the clinic to open as well.

Some believe the employees of the facility and patients coming in and out of the facility will amount to a big boost to the area.

The VA clinic is scheduled to open sometime this summer.
