Children's Park

The Children's Park is nearly complete and has been open to the neighborhood to use.  The park features a children's sized basketball court and hopscotch.  A free basketball camp was held on July 23rd coached by a neighborhood resident whom is a community basketball coach.  There was a terrific turnout and the kids really enjoyed themselves meeting new friends and learning the game of basketball.

Economic Development

What will the neighborhood be?

  • It will be a place where you and your family can have breakfast together because there is a restaurant nearby.

  • It will be a place to work because there are businesses.

  • It will be a place to shop because there are retail stores.

  • It will be a great place to raise a family or retire.

It will be a great place to live.
