Lively Pointe Youth Center Renovations Begin March 20


Lively Pointe Youth Center, 909 N. O'Connor Road, will close Monday, March 20 for a $764,993 renovation project that will add new amenities for teens. The facility will remain closed throughout renovations, which are expected to be completed in September.

Teaching Kitchen

The kitchen and café area of the center will be transformed into a full teaching kitchen, including cameras to demonstrate cooking techniques. The expansion of the kitchen means staff can serve a bigger audience and large groups.

Pantry space will be expanded, and the kitchen will receive commercial-grade appliances such as a stove, dishwasher and microwave.

Sound Studio

The sound studio will give the community’s teens a place to create recorded works, such as music and podcasts, in a professional soundproof studio. The studio installation is funded through the CDBG program.

In addition to the new kitchen and sound studio, an additional office will be constructed for staff to continue serving the city’s middle and high school students, as well as special needs residents, with specialized programs.
