Southside Infrastructure Project

Southside Community Center

The Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority and partners are working to address the shortage of community recreational spaces in the Southside neighborhood. Young people—around half of whom live below the poverty line—could benefit from such a space in the heart of their neighborhood as a “home base” for meeting and hanging out. This multipurpose center could be developed to include play spaces for athletic competitions and neighborhood events and rented for large gatherings such as family reunions and community meetings.
