Our Mission

The mission of the Plain View Coalition is to support the Plain View community and the Plain View Park and Community Center by promoting outreach, improving access of community youth, adult, and elderly citizens to programming for wellness and recreations and to provide oversight for the Plain View Park and Community Center facilities, functions, and activities.

PVCC History

Plain View School was built in 1927 and included classrooms, a media center, and the auditorium. The cafeteria was added in 1953 and the gym was completed in 1986.

Plain View School served our community until a new school was built in 2001. The school was abandoned and Sampson County Commissioners deeded the old school, gym, and property to the Plain View Community.  Currently, a fundraising campaign is underway to raise money to fund Phase I and II of a master plan for a Northern Sampson Park.  Phase I includes the razing of the old Plain View Elementary School.  Phase II includes the construction of a Memorial Park with donor recognition using brick from the school.  Phase III will involve obtaining funding including grants for construction of a community park.  For more information or to make a donation see the PVCC Sponsor Brochure.

A 501(c)(3) charitable coalition called the Plain View Community Coalition was formed to manage the property and attempt to repurpose the gym, school, and land for community use.
