Community Revitalization Program Groundbreaking
On Thursday, May 23, 2019, the City of Dunn will kick off
its combined efforts with the Dunn Community Development Corporation to
rehabilitate 18 homes around the Dunn Enrichment Center. This groundbreaking
ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. on the lawn in front of the Dunn Enrichment
Center campus, 610 E. Johnson Street.
Residents in this area of Dunn were able to apply to
have their homes rehabilitated thanks to a $574,000 Small Cities Community
Development Block Grant specified for Neighborhood Revitalization (CDBG-NR)
administered by the Rural Economic Development Division, of the North Carolina
Department of Commerce. The City and the DCDC will go out for bid on
contractors to begin this work later this summer.
Please join us at 10 a.m. on May 23 to celebrate this
opportunity for members of our community. The groundbreaking ceremony will
include messages from Mayor Oscar Harris, Council Member Dr. Gwen McNeill, Project
Administrator Skip Green, and others.
