In this video (see below) Dr. Narendra Sharma, NOC Founder & Chair, discusses NOC’s 2-year interim solution with St. Lukes Church, HHI, to house the NOC Learning Center so that children from Cordillo, Hedges, and Woodhaven Apartments can continue to participate in NOC’s after school and summer learning programs. NOC previously provided this education program at its Learning Center (LC) at Cordillo Courts, but that LC was closed on May 10, 2018, in response to the decision of the Cordillo Board to shut down NOC’s program at Cordillo.
In the interview, Dr. Sharma says that the Town of HHI should proceed quickly in implementing its proposed project to rehabilitate the existing tennis courts, including a community building (at least 1,400 sq. ft.) for use by all people in HHI, especially those who live at the south end of the Island.
The proposed Cordillo Project was recently approved by the Town Council in a vote of 7 to 0. It is important that the Town safeguard the interests of the HHI community over actions of a handful of outside investors who are driven by narrow self-interest and profit making.
