THE PLAN TO SPRUCE HILLYARD UP IS MOVING FORWARD...
A ONE POINT SEVEN MILLION DOLLAR GYMNASTICS FACILITY
IS MOVING IN LATE THIS FALL.
KXLY'S ALLIE NORTON IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT.
SHE TALKED WITH THE GYM'S OWNER ABOUT WHAT IT'LL MEAN
TO THE COMMUNITY.
COMING SOON TO HILLYARD.
TRICKS AND A WHOLE LOT OF FUN.
DYNAMIC GYMNATICS CURRENTLY ON NORTH DIVISION IS GETTING
READY TO PACK UP AND HEAD SOUTH EAST TO HAVANA STREET.
OWNER ADANA HARRIS SAYS IT'S BEEN HER DREAM TO MOVE
INTO A BIGGER FACILITY FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS.
And it's going to be nice to have for everyone to
have breathing room to do what they need to do to
get to the next level.
NOW IT'S ALL BECOMING A REALITY.
THE NEW FACILITY WILL ALSO HAVE A PRE-SCHOOL, DANCE
STUDIO AND A JUI JITSU STYLE CLASS.
NOT ONLY FOR KIDS BUT ALSO FOR ADULTS.
So if all goes according to plan these guys will have
a new gym by November.
Are you excited? Yeah!
RESIDENTS IN HILLYARD ARE EXCITED TOO.
NOW THERE WILL BE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR KIDS.
I think the kids will benefit by it big time, it will
give them something to do and keep them out of trouble.
RIGHT NOW THERE'S A SKATE PARK, PUBLIC POOL AND COMMUNITY
PARENTS IN THE AREA SAY THAT THE MORE OPTIONS THERE
THE LESS LIKELY THEY ARE TO GET IN TROUBLE
They get very bored and get in the wrong crowd and
THIS GYM IS A SMALL PIECE OF A BIGGER PICTURE.
THERE'S BEEN A RECENT EFFORT TO CLEAN UP THE INDUSTRIAL
PART OF HILLYARD TO CREATE BUSINESS AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES.
THE COMMUNITY WAS EVEN AWARDED 100 THOUSAND DOLLARS
TO CREATE A BUSINESS PLAN.
And so we thought it was a great opportunity to get
on board to put in nice, new family friendly things.
LOOK FOR THEM IN NOVEMBER.
