Community Counts at Lakeside Middle School

This program was established to create opportunity for middle school students to become more actively involved in making a change in their community. Working with the AVID Program at Lakeside Middle School, HCDC proudly funded student projects. Projects focused on anti-drugs, anti-violence, anti-bullying, and anti- smoking. The students also want to clean up the city’s parks, read to preschoolers and help the homeless and the SPCA.


Center City Housing Rehab Program

HCDC offered a small rehab program in the form of a loan to homeowners whose primary residence is within the Center City Neighborhood. The match of up to $7,000 can go towards any home improvement project they choose and the loan is forgivable providing the homeowners remain in the home for a period of five years.

The second phase will entail the police department staff conducting CPTED evaluation days for residents that live within the Center City Neighborhood.
