In the past five years, Wyoming has been hard at work promoting the “Wyoming TownCenter”, which is made up of 230 stores in and around the Rodger´s Plaza and Studio 28 complex. The TownCenter Project is well on its way to making this 28th street location a “downtown” of its own. On the southern end of the city of Wyoming, a new hospital complex is being constructed. The Metro Health Hospital will be a 200-bed hospital with multiple health clinics and retail shops for both patients and visitors, providing many jobs for the surrounding community.
If industry isn´t what you´re looking for in a community, don´t be so quick to pass up Wyoming quite yet. With 21 parks and over 500 acres of green space, the city appeals to the recreational resident as well. There are multiple sports facilities, golf courses, nature trails, and bike trails that run right through the city of Wyoming.
In 2002, the Wyoming Public Library opened, and set a standard for libraries that stands unmatched in the Midwest to this day. This 48,000 square foot facility offers a library for the blind and physically handicapped, a 200 seat conference center and an unrivaled children´s program.
