The revitalization project at Collins P. Lee Center will also include a fenced community garden featuring healthy foods and will include an edible walking trail, fruit orchard and pavilion. The community center sits on property owned by the county and managed by the recreation department.
“[The project] is involving more and more community partners, and we’re seeing that there are really hopeful funds for this to be a pilot program. We can truly make a difference in this one area of town and then we can move to another area,” Cavin said. “This would be one more way to have access to do classwork, become Work Ready certified, and have access that is readily available. If we can help children become more successful by providing the resources, hopefully that will impact their employability.”
