And the recreation department will soon be named after Claude Lewis, who served as director for the department for almost three decades. Lewis says the new complex will be a place everyone can enjoy.

"This is going to be for everybody and not just the youth of the community, it's going to be for the adults as well as the youth, and you adults need to take part in it," Lewis said.
