Critz Community Enhancement Project
A project is underway to develop a community center in Critz Virginia .
Based on feedback gathered at three community meetings, members of Virginia Tech's Community Change Collaboative and Community Design Assistance Center have provided a vision and strategic plan for the development of a community center in the Critz community in Patrick County, Virginia. The plan includes:
A renovation design for a historic home to serve as a community center, located adjacent to the Hardin Reynolds Memorial School.
A land-use plan for the 12-acre plot around the community center.
The renovation of the historic home on the property has potential to cultivate local artistic, entrepreneurship, and create opportunities for community members to access to arts and cultural programs, classes, and events, as well as access to job training and workforce development resources. The 12-acre property has the potential to be a gathering place for the community with elements such as a picnic shelter, playground, trails and other enhancements.
The Critz Community Enhancement Project is funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission and coordinated by:
