PARISH COMPLETES NEW COMMUNITY BUILDING FOR CITIZENS
The David Raines Community Center is enjoying a new facility to serve citizens, thanks to the Caddo Parish Commission. The new 2,000 square foot building officially opened on Wednesday, August 29 during a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The Caddo Parish Commission voted in 2015 to amend the Parish budget to replace the existing temporary buildings that the Community Center was using to provide services to citizens. The new building will allow the Center to offer more programs and open services to larger groups of residents in the community.
“The Commission saw the need to accommodate the critical work that the Community Center was doing in our neighborhoods,” said Commissioner Lyndon B. Johnson. “It is fulfilling to see this project come to completion for all of the citizens in this area,” said Johnson at the ceremony.
The building project is part of several projects that the Parish has funded for the Center. Projects include a building façade, renovation of Head Start classrooms and drainage projects.
