Good News…

Here is a good story with some good news behind it. Good job to all involved looking forward to seeing this when it is completed.

DEARBORN — It was a ground-breaking ceremony in more ways than one as local dignitaries came together to officially announce the forthcoming Hype Athletics complex and Hope for Humanity Center, a joint venture between the two well-known non-profit Dearborn institutions.

The new 110,000 square-foot complex will be built on the site of Warrendale Park and will be used as a multipurpose facility with the goal of community-building in mind. The expected timetable for its construction is about a year give or take a few months.

“After endless hours of searching for sites we finally found the right one,” said Ali Sayed, a 2009 Dearborn City Council candidate who founded Hype Athletics.

“We are shocked with the generosity Wayne County and the city of Dearborn Heights showed us and we want to thank them for that.”

Dearborn Heights City Councilman Tom Berry talked about what the center will provide for the city and the area.

“This complex will help to build awareness and community, it will become a destination point, it will help the city make progress and the property values will increase.”

    I understand your concern not knowing to much about this project I do know that the money is to be used to improve the Neighborhood. Improving the park would go a long way to improving the whole area around that park revitalizing the whole area around the park. All of your questions are very good ones and you might like to contact the Wayne County Exec office. Or someone that has been very involved with this project councilman Tom Berry. I am sure that he would be more than happy to answer any concern that you might have. You can find his contact information here on the site on the top of the page menu bar under council members.


  2. I’m a little confused about this project. The article failed to mention (or at least I didn’t see it) that Wayne County not only gave this organization the park land on which to build, but also that Wayne County is giving them over $6,000,000 (yes, million) of NSP money to build. I have asked around before and still nobody has been able to answer it — how can the county give them $6M+ of NSP? I don’t see it in the NSP info as being elligible. Dearborn Heights, Detroit, Dearborn and other cities all have huge need of this NSP money as it is intended to be used, and yet it’s being spent on something different??? That just seems criminal to many of us.

    No wonder they’re very tight-lipped about the funding. Is someone getting away with something here? I think this REALLY needs to be investigated by the proper authorities.
