Centro comunitario de Frayser cierra de forma indefinida debido a posibles riesgos para la salud

Frayser Community Center Closing Indefinitely Due to Possible Health Hazards

MEMPHIS, TN (LPL/WREG) — Funcionarios en el Centro Comunitario Ed Rice dijeron que les preocupaba que el edificio tuviera moho.

Dijeron que las preocupaciones comenzaron cuando los trabajadores electorales se quejaron de las condiciones en el día de las elecciones.

El Centro Comunitario Ed Rice está ubicado en la cuadra 2900 de North Watkins Street.

La División de Parques y Vecindarios contrató a un consultor ambiental para evaluar la situación y recomendar medidas para remediarla. Se tomaron muestras y hay un informe de laboratorio pendiente.

Las familias e individuos que se presentaron el jueves para practicar baile, baloncesto y otros eventos fueron rechazados.

“Son niños de Frayser. Realmente no tienen nada que hacer. Vienen aquí para apoyarse en el centro comunitario. Al cerrar, va a ser mucho”, dijo Tyresha Taylor, cuya hija practica danza en el centro comunitario seis días a la semana.

Los funcionarios de la ciudad dijeron que los residentes pueden asistir al North Frayser Community Center ubicado en 2555 St. Elmo Avenue, y Kate Sexton Community Center, ubicado en 1235 Brown Avenue.

MEMPHIS, TN (WREG) — Officials at the community center told they worried the building had mold.

They said the concerns started when poll workers complained about Election Day conditions.

The Ed Rice Community Center is located at the 2900 block of  North Watkins Street.

The Division of Parks and Neighborhoods hired an environmental consultant to assess the situation and recommend steps to remediate it. Samples have been taken and a lab report is pending.

Families and individuals who showed up Thursday for dance practice, basketball and other events were turned away.

“It’s Frayser kids. They don’t really have anything to do. They come here to lean on the community center. By us closing, it’s going to be a lot,” said Tyresha Taylor, whose daughter takes dance practice at the community center six days a week.

City officials said residents can attend the North Frayser Community Center located at 2555 St. Elmo Avenue, and Kate Sexton Community Center, located at 1235 Brown Avenue.
