Bayview Resource Center Groundbreaking
Scheduled for May 7, 2018
City of Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and District 4 Councilman Larry Johnson invite the community to join them for a groundbreaking ceremony at Bayview Park, 2000 East Lloyd Street for the new Bayview Resource Center. The ceremony will take place on Monday, May 7th at 11:00 a.m.
Bayview Resource Center will be an exciting new addition to Bayview Park. The facility, which replaces the former community center that was demolished in 2015, will provide more accessible uses and waterfront access for the community to enjoy. The building is designed to be an active and highly social building that also reinforces the importance of Bayou Texar as a natural asset, and supports continued improvements of and around Bayou Texar.
The community center portion of the facility will include a large event space which can be separated into two smaller event spaces, meeting rooms, a catering kitchen, fitness room, and staff offices. A large open lobby welcomes guests to the facility and there are multiple decks and balconies offering sweeping views of the waterfront. There is also space for storage of kayak, SUP, and rowing sculls to provide a home for paddle sports and non-motorized water activities. There will also be indoor and outdoor access to restrooms.
The Bayview Senior Center will remain in its current location adjacent to the new community center and will see relief from program crowding as well as improved access to parking.
“We are very excited for this new resource center at Bayview Park,” said Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward. “My staff and I have worked tirelessly to bring another extraordinary amenity to our community. This new attractive facility will embrace the waterfront and will be something that everyone can enjoy.”

I wanted to make the East Hill HOA community aware that our contractors will be in the East Hill area trimming vegetation for routine maintenance until the end of the year beginning December 11, 2017. We are not trimming the 12thAve tree tunnel at this time for routine maintenance around our facilities. We understand the need for vegetation maintenance in the East Hill area and wanted to spend the remaining weeks of 2017 improving our system where we can.
We appreciate everyone’s help with this endeavor as our contractors have already began notifying the East Hill residents in the affected areas. I am always available to our customers on my cell phone at 850-418-9481 for questions or to listen to concerns
The East Hill Neighborhood Association Board of Directors will be installing a Little Free Library at OJ Semmes Elementary School on Tuesday, May 23 at 12:30 p.m. The board of directors include current and past educators that wanted to give our zoned school a gift that will keep on giving. The gift of reading adventures! The library was personally constructed by one of our board members, Richard Christine and his crew. Please join us in this wonderful opportunity for the students of OJ Semmes Elementary School. Just in time for summer!
Earlier this school year, the board donated over $1000 worth of headphones and STEM activities to the school’s media center for student enrichment. In addition, we hosted a neighborhood winter coat drive that donated over 60 brand new coats plus dozens of gently used ones. For the Little Free Library, many neighbors have contributed books to kickstart the reading selection. The board is committed to supporting OJ Semmes Elementary and the neighborhood children.
