Resource Center Turns Corner
Area residents remember the former grocery store.
"Kind of a congregation place for everybody that lived in the neighborhood, everybody knew everyone," recalled Gene Armstrong.
The Corner Action Committee hopes to restore that feeling.
"So we can know who our neighbors are and enjoy our neighbors," explained member Peter Byger.
"It's going to be a place for people to do art, to speak out, to learn computers, to get job skills," he added. "Everything that the community and neighborhood needs."
Byger said the committee still needs $200,000 to complete the project, which the Columbia City Council will discuss at its Oct. 16 meeting.
