In July, the Town of Goshen was awarded a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to determine the feasibility of converting a vacant school building into a mixed-use community center. If brought to fruition, the community center would provide a variety of services including a health center, food bank distribution, senior services, health classes, Wi-Fi access, and additional community meeting and outdoor recreation space. The building currently houses the regional library and child-care program, which are planned to remain through the transition. In August, Goshen will complete initial activities outlined by DHCD prior to beginning the feasibility study that is scheduled to complete in Spring of 2022.
