A crowd of Suwannee County residents gathered at the corner of Dowling Park Dr. and Marvin Jones Blvd. in Dowling Park Tuesday morning, Jan. 26, to break ground at the site of the Suwannee River Regional Library System's (SRRLS) newest addition: the Jo Kennon Dowling Park Public Library. The library, which was first proposed by Danny Hales over a decade ago, survived several obstacles to become reality and anticipation only made the event sweeter. In 2014, Suwannee County was awarded the financial support necessary to make the Dowling Park library a reality. Funding from the state is only part of what is necessary to fund the project and many in the county have stepped up to fill in the financial gap.
Advent Christian Village (ACV) recently held a service of dedication at The Village Church following the completion of two construction projects: Phase I of Taylor Commons, ACV’s newest neighborhood, and improvements made to the Christian education and office areas at The Village Church. These are the first projects to be completed which are part of the new ACV Master Development Plan announced at the end of 2013 with the 100th Anniversary Capital Campaign.
