The outdoor community space in Robbins has been damaged from someone driving a truck through the newly laid sod on Saturday morning. The town of Robbins is not going to let that stop them though. Shortly after seeing the damage, volunteers set forth to fix the green space with more sod. Thanks to Commissioners, Kevin Stewart and Joel Boswell, and to Daniel Avila Catalan, Carlos Avila Catalan, Brandon Simmons, Brian Marley, and Clare Ruggles (with Northern Moore Family Resource Center) for stepping up to the plate to fix the situation for the community of Robbins.
Town Manager, David Lambert, released a statement on the town’s face book page saying “We are better than this, and if we aren’t now, we will be. Sometimes change is hard, and people get comfortable with the narrative that things can’t get better. It’s a lie. This isn’t going to stop our progress, and the Town is committed to making our community a great place to live. Part of that includes keeping people and property safe.”
The outdoor community space is in the process of being created in the town after receiving a $75,000 grant. The Town of Robbins and Northern Moore Family Resource Center collaborated to improve the appearance of the downtown area, and the new green space will include an outdoor stage to host bands and performances.
The Police Department and The Town of Robbins is asking if anyone can provide credible information that leads to the identification of the person or persons responsible for this, please email [email protected], or please call 9109482431 ext. 5 to leave a message.
