Good Morning, Bransford Revitalization Project

I have been attending the Robertson County Chamber ofCommerce’s “Good Morning Robertson County!” since moving here years ago. You can find more about it here. It is a great way to keep up-to-speed on the current events throughout Robertson County.

Per example: This past Thursday (April 22, 2011), Greater Faith Community Action Corporation (GFCAC) shared a little about themselves, and shared specifically with regard to their “Bransford Revitalization Project” of the Bransford Community Center.
You will remember that I had previously discussed this project here.
This message from their “Bransford Revitalization Project” flyer:
The Bransford Revitalization Project is a community-wide effort to revitalize the Bransford Park area, and a vacant 6.1 acre tract behind the school consisting of the old Bransford High School. The project involves the complete renovation of the of old Bransford High School for use as a non-profit community center, and the development of the Brandsford Park as a multi-function recreational complex and community park.
The project is being organized by the Greater Faith Action Corporation (GFAC), a local 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, in partnership with the City of Springfield, local community service agencies, and community leaders.
The complex will house a variety of needed community programs including Educational, Youth, Health & Wellness, Sports, Substance Abuse Recovery, Small Business Incubator, Soup Kitchen, and facilities for community gatherings. Community meetings will be held in the developmental stages to gather public input on programming and services desired.
The project  has the full support and endorsement of several key community groups including GFCAC, United Way, Bransford Alumni Association, I-Care, BYCDC, City of Springfield, Robertson County Chamber of Commerce and others.
For more information, check out the GFCAC site.


  1. This is a wonderful opportunity for our City. It appears this site will take care of all of the needs in the community. That way residents can just dontate to this entity rather than numerous ones. It seems like every time I turn around someone is wanting a donation, which is not realistic. With unemployment at another increase, and money being so tight, this is exactly what we need. Thank you, GFCAC for realizing and acting on the needs the City of Springfield has.
