Question - they have $$$ to build a “state-of-the-art” amphitheater/green space, but nothing for the kids in the community?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not objecting to the amphitheater, I would just like to see something put in place for the children for a change.

Ideas for kids stuff:

A skating rink
A pool (that is actually affordable)
A movie theater
A science museum for kids
....just to name a few!

I get disgusted sometimes when I go out of state and see all of the things that are in other places for families to do, but we have hardly anything compared to other places! I know this is a poor state, but I think it could be improved quite a bit!....just my opinion....

These are some excellent ideas! We have a huge empty walmart store, been vacant for years now. That could be used for a skate rink or movie theater any of the above ideas. What benefit is there to a vacant store front?

They have had things for kids but the bad seeds always show up and cause problems and the city shuts it down.

These are all great ideas. Now lets all meet at the people who controll Oak Hill and make sure they hear us. Has anyone seen the 2 guys who drive around main st just to water the plants the city has put in with all the xtri money we have! What about getting all the people who attend our adult daycare center for 8 hours a day to keep them OUT of Jail. Lets have them clean our streets and prune and water. If there good enough to be picked up every morning BY the City and taken to there Adult day program for 8 hours a day. Let the work to repair there legal damage to our town with just as much hard work as got them were they are. Let them repay our town and pick up trash.And if they think there to good, Put them back from were they come,,Jail.

I agree with oakhillone and all the other comments oak hill needs something for th children in the community to do and have some of the city workers help with monitoring the rife raft or aka bad seeds and the old walmart store would be a great starting point but if oak hill desides to do anything for the youths that to make it affordable so it will be a success

How about bringing Robbie Carrico back "home" to do a fund raiser?
