An ambitious community development project is getting started at the MBIE Mary McLeod-Bethune Intervention and Enrichment Center at Hedges and East Second Streets in Mansfield.

Nine Americorps volunteers from across the country are preparing the building for construction of the $1.4-million Carter Neighborhood Plaza.

Founder and President Alverta Williams says the building will be expanded from 9000 to 11,000 square feet and house a 225-seat multi-purpose room, an 1100 square foot licensed commercial kitchen, and a senior center. 

Williams says this will be a great asset to the urban community, with the incubator kitchen allowing small food-making businesses to grow and develop. 

The Americorps team says they're happy to help, and to be in Mansfield.

$750,000 has been raised so far with help from the U-S Department of Agriculture, city of Mansfield, the Finance Fund, Richland Bank, and donations.

To donate, go to www.mbie.org.  

The project should be completed by the end of the year, creating five full-time and twenty part-time jobs.
