City officials and the community gathered on Friday to kick off the construction of the new Frederick Douglass Community Center with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The project will replace the entire wing of the Douglass Gym, located in Bahama Village on Olivia Street.

This $8 million dollar project will house the renowned Bahama Village Music Program, providing a platform for budding musicians.

The center's design will accommodate sports, art, learning, and social activities. It will host after-school tutoring, adult education, nutrition education, and small business incubation. This hub will feature a learning center, a senior activity area, a 2,600-square-foot main hall, and an event kitchen.

The Community Center is expected to be up and running by January 2025.
