“This is as excited as I have seen people in a long time,” Opp Mayor Becky Bracke said of the response. “This is a really positive thing that has happened.”
The projection represents more than a decade’s worth of work and planning. The city was awarded a $400,000 grant through the Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) for the project, which was expected to cost $762,500.
Bracke said in the weeks since the project was completed and before the open house, the facility has already played host to a birthday party, wedding reception, reunion and baby shower.
“There’s been something here every weekend,” she said.
The Chamber of Commerce will move into the facility within the next few weeks.
