The Panama City Community Redevelopment Agency is hoping to reinvent A.D. Harris Learning Village by moving their offices from Jenks Avenue to right here on campus. The CRA is making themselves right at home in their new location. Complete with boxes, signs, and more boxes
"So we have to kind of like detach, unplug, and move everything," said Toni Shamplain with the CRA. "Now, we have to re-plug, readjust, and get back to it."
And not only does the organization have a new digs, but they've added a few other housekeeping items as well.
"We have a new position that we've brought on," said Shamplain. "That is a document specialist and that young lady is going to make sure that we stay organized as it relates to the critical documents in our organization."
Shamplain says the move will also serve as a solution to some issues facing them at A.D. Harris. The ability to be on site property owners gives a certain sense of security to future tenants.
"It really makes the ground level because if they see us commit then they are willing to commit," said Shamplain.
Although CRA employees aren't finished unpacking just yet the offices are currently open for business. The A.D. Harris Learning Village is located on 11th Street just east of Martin Luther King Boulevard.
