(This amendment provides $500,000 the first year from the general fund for the construction of a new, expanded space that can help meet the needs of a growing audience. The federal government has granted the museum $1.2 million toward the cost of construction of a state-of-the-art, platinum-level LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) building. The city of Winchester has donated 3.5 acres in the city park. Private and corporate donors are attracted to the project because of contributions made by the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum has the highest annual attendance of any cultural entity in the region.)
