In August, Florence Kingston and Jim Scanlon, Owner of Jim’s Local Market, were invited to give a presentation on Brooks Crossing at a luncheon hosted by HRACRE.

The presentation was titled “How to Grow an Apple: The Development of Brooks Crossing – A Public-Private Partnership in a Food Desert.”

Florence and Jim shared the vision and progress of Brooks Crossing with a regional audience and showcased the various components of the project which include the broader investment in the Southeast Community, the new police precinct, BayPort Credit Union and Jim’s Local Market.

This was a great opportunity to illustrate a project impactful to the residents of the City and to highlight a strong collaborative effort undertaken by the EDA, the City and our community partners.
