The new Fox Hill Neighborhood Center officially opened on June 5, 2021. Only half of the center is open so far. At the opening of the main building, city officials and the neighborhood group officially broke ground on part two of the center: the gymnasium. 

Neighborhood officers are:

  • President            Jamie Chapman
  • Vice-President   Brian Rowland
  • Secretary           Linda Ware
  • Treasurer           Tori Keener

If you would like to volunteer or contribute to the center, your help would be welcomed.

Rooms in the new Fox Hill Neighborhood Center will be available for rent for organizations and individuals who want to hold events there. People who volunteer at the center will receive credits they can use toward the cost of rentals. For more information, go to foxhillneighborhoodcenter.com. The site also has an events calendar.

Please email Jamie Chapman at jamiec0202@gmail.com with your information and how you would like to be a part of the new center.

How was this site picked?

Fox Hill groups created their first neighborhood center in a building at Grundland Park. It was used from the mid-1970s until it was destroyed by a tornado in 2014. That center served as a site for youth sports registrations and banquets, various meetings, senior citizens gatherings, weddings, funerals, family reunions and spaghetti suppers and fish fries, often fund-raisers for local organizations.

A community engagement process, including public meetings, was used to select a new site. Finding the site took longer than expected because of the prevalence of wetlands in the Fox Hill area. Residents preferred the former church, and the selection of an existing building allowed the center to open — at least in part — faster than new construction would have allowed.
