“Economic development, job training, and improved community appearance are some of the changes I hope will result.”…. “Would like to see this community grow and thrive without drugs or violence”…. “We need more health foods.” (Quotes from community survey)
Residents of the Driskell Heights and Powells neighborhoods, in northeast Palm Bay and Melbourne, Florida respectively, are filled with hope and excitement for Evans Center! This economic development project will officially open on March 9, 2019 (see the Events page for more information), and will be a cornerstone for community revitalization. Located on the site of the historic Evans Supermarket, Evans Center will serve this community just as the market once did, with easily accessible, healthy, fairly priced foods. Classrooms at Evans Center will be used for job training for neighborhood youth. Evans Center will also host a health clinic and wellness programs.
