Wyoming Park graduates help district start anew

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-This fall, two Wyoming schools will consolidate under one name, mascot and logo.

Wyoming Park High School is being transformed into Wyoming Junior High School and Rogers High School will become the district's only high school, serving 10th grade through 12th grade.

Saturday night, two graduates of Wyoming Park High School did their part to help the district start anew, by selling off old school memorabilia.

"When we found out the schools were combining, we wanted to do something that brought Wyoming together. That's why [this event is] called Unite Wyoming," explained co-organizer Jonathan Vitale Saturday.

"As a Park grad, I'm going to miss the tradition, but as far as the two schools coming together, I think it's good for the community," added co-organizer Steven Varnes.

Wyoming City Manager's Blog - What's new

From: http://wyomingmi.gov

As I go through my daily routine – shopping at the grocery store, walking in the neighborhood, golfing or watching some sporting event at a school or in the park -- people will often ask me what’s new in the City of Wyoming.  Many times I say same old stuff, and then it occurred to me that for most people my “same old stuff” is probably pretty “new.”  So I thought I would take a little space today and talk about some of the “same old stuff” that residents may not actually have heard of yet.

Wyoming eyes Crescent St. project to revatilize city

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - The City of Wyoming is looking into building a downtown area from scratch. The project is called 28 West.

The city would create Crescent Street between Clyde Park Ave. and Burlingame Ave. SW, along the 28th Street corridor. Rezoning could happen as soon as this fall. It would involved a mixed-use town center area with a new Main Street.

In total, 28 West would allow for 660,000 square feet of business space and about 600 new apartments.

The project evolved from the former Turn on 28th Street' initiative. Some existing businesses would have to be moved and the project itself would take about 15 years to complete.
