Woodland Heights Neighborhood Center Dedication April 22

A dedication ceremony for the Woodland Heights Neighborhood Center will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, April 22, at the center, located at 316 W. Atlantic St. in Springfield.

The center will be renamed in honor of Charlie Norr, who served as a state representative in the 137th District in northwest Springfield from 2006 to 2010 and was instrumental in the rehabbing of the building before it was turned over to the Springfield-Greene County Park Board in 2005.

Representatives from the Park Board, the Woodland Heights Neighborhood Association and the Urban Neighborhoods Alliance will be on hand to speak, as will Mr. Norr.

For more information, contact: Bob Horton, Executive Director, Urban Neighborhoods Alliance, (417) 865-4774.
