Avondale's Future YFD Center
The City of Chattanooga is investing over $6 million into East Chattanooga through the building of a new Avondale Youth & Family Development (YFD) Center. The new center, which will be built from the ground up, will more than double the square footage of the current Avondale center and include additional new amenities.
We've heard from the community and now it is time to put all of your ideas into action. The architectural team, Hefferlin + Kronenberg, is now in the design phase for the new Center. We will be updating you soon regarding a timeline for the design phase as well as estimated dates for the bidding process to start for site construction.
