“We are closing the punch-list items out soon at the Community Center and look forward to reopening the building for our beloved community to once again enjoy events such as bingo, dances, and rentals,” Council President Christy Bobo told Patch. “We’re very thankful for the support from the community members who have assisted.”

She went on to thank Nini Jobson and Chuck Gerdau for helping the city’s public works team with ideas for grounds improvements and preservation of the historical character.

“We have spoken with multiple members of District 1 regarding future potential programming such as movie nights and gatherings,” Bobo said. “We’re looking forward to seeing the center used in an increased capacity for senior meals to be distributed one day soon.”

As Patch previously reported, the Northport City Council originally considered selling the property to a developer for it to become a mixed-use development. However, city leaders were met with substantial public backlash and Mayor John Hinton said he would veto the sale if it ever got to the point.

Instead, the Council opted to invest in much-needed improvements for the Community Center to allow for its continued use.
