Gainesville city comissioner Scherwin Henry is delivering a keynote presentation on East Gainesville tonight at the East Gainesville Development Corporation annual meeting. The presentation will include an overview of city involvement in recent community and economic development activities intended to position east Gainesville for sustainable growth as economic conditions improve. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Ironwood Golf Course Clubhouse.
Some Gainesville residents are upset with the construction at Celebration Pointe and the impact the development is having on the native tree population, but Alachua County has a plan to replace the felled trees. Gainesville resident Marion Hylton just hopes those plans are carried out sometime in her lifetime.
