Advocating to Revitalize Randall Community Center
THANK YOU!!! To Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Inc., SW Neighborhood Assembly, and all witnesses who testified with CBCC in support of improvements to Randall's building for use as a community center.
The Community Enrichment Committee, chaired by Eve Brooks, has consistently advocated for several categories of direly-needed funding for the complete revitalization of Randall Community Center. Working with our ANC6D, 2d representative, Stacy Cloyd, our community partners, Bernstein Company, Telesis Corporation, and Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Inc., our friends from the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly Youth Taskforce, and other local leaders, we have combined our talents and resources to ensure that Randall's Community Center is not left behind as the PlayDC park renovations near their completion this May 2015.
At the May 1st DPR Budget Hearing before Councilmember Cheh's Committee on Transportation and the Environment, we strongly advocated for three key items to ensure Randall Community Center thrives in the long run:
1. Annual funding for programming in the DC Parks and Recreation's budget at a minimum of $350,000;
2. Capitol funding in the Department of General Services budget for interior renovations at a minimum of $700,000; and
3. Passing of regulations to permit sliding-scale fees to be charged at community centers like Randall, for certain services and programs to help raise funds internally and become more self-sustaining.
Together, we WILL get the job done!
