Major Change For North End Community Center

There's going to be more than just ball hockey at the North End Community Center....the center on Victoria Street has been approved for Phase 1 of a $3 million revitalization project. Scott Crawford of One Change tells CHSJ News the community's needs have grown since the center was built in the 1970s.

Among the problems are that the building is too cold in the winter and too hot in summer, lacking natural light, and generally run down.

Crawford says he anticipates the money will also go toward new programs like prenatal counseling for parents and mental fitness for young people.
