Construction Begins on Community Workshop

Monday, January 13, 2014

YNDC has begun construction of a Community Workshop facility at its neighborhood revitalization campus on Canfield Road to conduct planning, training, agricultural and neighborhood project activities year-round and on a more frequent basis.

The workshop will be utilized for community projects that require dedicated workshop space including: cutting and painting boards to secure blighted houses, constructing raised beds and benches, processing salvaged materials from demolished homes, producing neighborhood public art, and other construction-related activities that must be performed in a safe, organized and controlled workshop space prior to taking action in neighborhoods. The workshop will be ready for use by early spring 2014.
