Since that time the campus has been used as a one-stop shop for community services provided by non-profit organizations and city youth recreation activities.

Current occupants include the Franklin's Promise Coalition, food pantry, Gulf Coast Workforce Board, the Capital Area Community Action Agency, the Franklin County Public Library Tigers Program, BP Claims office, the city's Project Impact afterschool and summer enrichment programs, the city’s KUT (Kids United Together) youth program, and several other non-profit community organizations.

“I don’t want it to be about me,” Johnson said. “Let the name of it be secondary to the services provided out here. I’m more proud of what we have to offer here than anything.”

Johnson said he plans to establish regular part-time office hours after the first of the year.

At the conclusion of the meeting, Sharon Berrian, associate director for membership development for Florida League of Cities, Inc. (FLC) read a special proclamation approved in August at the FLC annual meeting and signed by FLC President P.C. Wu and attested to by FLC Executive Director Michael Sittig.

The resolution of the FLC board of directors honors Elliott for 30 years of elected service, and commends him “for his unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and governance.”

It notes that several terms in office “is a high compliment voters give to an official, and with these years of experience comes a strengthening of wisdom, discernment and strong leadership skills that brings tremendous value to the municipal governments of Florida.”
