OAK HILL -
A new business model is in the works to revive an old bowling alley. Plans to transform White Oak Lanes gets a strike at a meeting Monday night. The City of Oak Hill granted a Use permit for the new project, which would allow alcohol sales. Receiving UP was a vital piece of the puzzle for developers to undertake this business venture. Developers plan on maintaining a fun environment for the whole family.
"We hear the complaints all the time around Oak Hill... Oh, when it rain, when it snow, or when it's dark there's nothing to do. Well, we are changing all that with one big dramatic awesome entertainment center," said Alison Ibarra, Developer.
"It was a bowling alley. It's been closed for a while. It's good to see it be re-opened too by a young energetic couple. They have a lot of energy and we look forward to a lot of good things from them," said Councilor Tom Oxley, City of Oak Hill.
The new center proposes to have eight new bowling lanes, jumbo TV monitors, video arcades and a multi-sports simulator for kids. There are also plans for patio dinning to go along with a full-scale restaurant. Opening day is set for late summer of 2014.
