Panama City officials met with Glenwood locals Thursday to discuss future plans for two recreation spots during a town hall at A.D. Harris Learning Village in Panama City.

The Martin Luther King Recreational Center and Woods Ball Field were both damaged by Hurricane Michael.

Thursday, Panama City officials presented three options to rebuild the center.

Some included expanding the rec center and possibly adding a sports complex near Woods Ball Field.

Officials say the goal for the future of Glenwood is clear.

"There is a passionate desire to invest in the Glenwood community, so that we can invest in our kids. We can give them a venue to have indoor activities and as well as outdoor sporting activities," said Panama City City Manager Mark McQueen.

McQueen also said they are still waiting on FEMA funding before moving forward with the projects.
