Council Member McCoy hosts 6th District meeting to discuss Jackson Street Boys and Girls Club

WILMINGTON–  On December 19, 2018 6thDistrict Council Member Yolanda McCoy will be hosting a community discussion at Pulaski Elementary School over the future of the site of the Jackson Street Boys and Girls Club.

After eight years of sitting vacant through unsuccessful attempts to revive it, officials with the Jackson Street Boys and Girls Club requested permission from the city to demolish the building.

The club had been a site for after-school sports and activities, health screenings and more in the Hedgeville neighborhood for nearly 80 years, until it closed in 2010.

The meeting is expected to be an exchange of questions and answers surrounding, among other things, what other organizations in the district are in place to fill the void left by the club’s closing.

“I want the community to have an understanding of how and why the decisions were made regarding Jackson Street Boys and Girls Club,” said Council Member McCoy. “I also want to give them an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers about next steps and the Boys and Girls Club’s commitment to the 6th district.”
