Mayor LaToya Cantrell, accompanied by other city officials, broke ground on the $2.07 million Village De L’Est Multi-Purpose Building that will serve NORD in District E.

According to the press release, when the project is completed in the fall, the facility will include:

  • A large, multi-purpose room
  • A concessions area that services indoor and outdoor patrons
  • Pantry and office space
  • Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible male, female and family restrooms

The project is expected to be completed in October 2021.
