Water Street Fitness is expected to be open by the end of the month, and residents can sign up for membership now.
The Wilmington Island Park District Board of Commissioners Monday approved an equipment lease, the hours of operation, monthly grand opening membership fees, the facility layout and the cost of construction.
The district will act as its own general contractor for the project. The board approved the cost of the buildout of Water Street Fitness, at 315 N. Water St., at $41,167.
A three-year, $121,000 lease agreement will equip the building.
Initially, the facility will be open and staffed Monday through Thursday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
The board approved grand opening monthly membership fees that will be available through March. Memberships start at $7.92 per month for in-district senior citizens and top out at the two-member family non-resident rate of $37.50. There is also an option for those who don't want to commit to an annual membership.
