Community task force seeks input on Charles Lind Brown Community Center

Outside court_CLBBEAUFORT, S.C.  (July 14, 2021) –  A task force comprised of community members from northern Beaufort County is seeking input from interested citizens on how to bring more of a community focus to the Charles Lind Brown Center, often called by its previous name, the Greene Street Gym.

“This is a great opportunity for the citizens to help shape recreation activities in their community and help give input to the County Parks and Recreation Master Plan development,” said Chris Ophardt, Beaufort County public information officer.

The Charles Lind Brown Center, which is in the Northwest Quadrant in the City of Beaufort, is operated by Beaufort County Parks & Recreation Department. It has a pool, an indoor and outdoor basketball court, a small playground, various classrooms and meeting rooms, a kitchen, offices, and restrooms.

The task force has made a presentation to City of Beaufort officials and is partnering with Beaufort County on how best to revitalize the center’s relevance as a community asset. As a first step, members have put together a survey seeking input from residents about the kinds of services, activities, and events they would like to see at the center. The survey will be distributed through Beaufort County and City of Beaufort channels, including social media. Task force members also plan to go door-to-door in neighborhoods close to the center to get as many responses as possible.

J. Edward Allen, former Beaufort County coroner, is the chairman of the task force. Beaufort City Councilman Mitch Mitchell is helping to facilitate the group and its outreach to local governments.

The survey will close on Aug. 18. 

For more information about the survey, contact Mitch Mitchell at 425-503-0949 or Ed Allen at 843-812-0526.
