Vinton–On April 26, the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors will be hearing the first reading of an ordinance authorizing the sale of the former Vinton Library to Richard H. Macher for the purpose of establishing a Macado’s restaurant at the property.
The library was vacated in November 2015 when the new library opened in downtown Vinton.
In December 2015 Roanoke County entered into a contract with Poe and Cronk Real Estate Group to provide commercial brokerage and marketing services for the property.
The county will initiate rezoning of the property from its current Residential Business classification for use as a full service restaurant. The purchase price is $700,000. The parcel contains 1.27 acres.
