The City of Danville invites residents in the Schoolfield Village community to attend a cookout that will serve as a kickoff event for redevelopment efforts in the community.
The cookout will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, at Hylton Avenue Park. Hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, chips and drinks will be served.
“We believe that community involvement is essential for healthy and sustainable community redevelopment,” said Jacqueline Wells, planning specialist for the Community Development Department. “We are excited to work with the residents of Schoolfield Village in these efforts!”
Wells said Schoolfield Village is a strong community of homeowners and renters who take pride in their neighborhood, but, like in many hardworking American communities, tough economic times have resulted in disinvestment in homes and neighborhoods.
City staff members plan to canvass the Schoolfield community to gain insight about the changes needed and how the City can work with residents. The City of Danville has preexisting programs that are open to all Danville residents including the Housing Rehabilitation program. This program offers eligible residents a zero interest loan for home rehabilitation.
At the cookout, staff will collect contact information and invite residents to join the neighborhood association and register for Nextdoor. In addition, City staff hope to bring attention and boost the community’s engagement with next month’s National Night Out.
