The City of Columbia will host a groundbreaking for the City’s Busby Street Community Resource & Training Center at the base of the James Clyburn Memorial Pedestrian Bridge. Construction will begin this week with anticipated completion in 2018. Once completed, the facility will feature a large community center with a conference room and recreation area and a new police substation with state of the art technology capabilities. A second phase of construction anticipated to start in 2018 will include walking trails, a playground, and plazas on the 1 acre site.
The groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2.
