The City of Gadsden announces a new Community Center in East Gadsden. Construction on the new building is expected to start within the next 30 to 60 days and is expected to take one year to complete. City of Gadsden Assistant to the Mayor Shane Ellison says locals can expect a lot from the new Community Center.
Ellison also says the current Community Center will continue to be open during the building of the new facility. City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Director Jennifer Weathington says it is important to have a Community Center for the people of East Gadsden.
The new facility will be built behind the current Community Center. The City of Gadsden Engineering Director Heath Williamson says the new community center is something that the people of Gadsden deserve.
Williamson also says once the new center is open, they will tear down the old building to create a larger parking lot. The new Community Center will bring more activity to East Gadsden including basketball tournaments.
