KILLEEN, TX â Killeen city leaders approved a $543,825 renovation plan with Randall Scott Architects, Inc. Tuesday to turn the Killeen Community Center into a multi-generational facility by adding on a senior center.
However, not everyone is happy with the project. Some locals say the City has turned a blind eye to teens and other youth.
âThereâs really not a lot of opportunities for our kids,â said resident Deezil Greezil. âThere are some other opportunities, but they cost money. For the average working person, that is a check. You really donât have a lot of resources left to invest in your kids.â

KILLEEN, TX â The IMpossible Paradigm Shifters Teen Center is officially open to kids in Killeen!
Founder and creator Vantonio Fraley says forming a teen center has been a dream of his for almost a decade. The idea stemmed from a lack of resources and mentorship for youth in Killeen.
This is a day Fraley says did not come without a fight. The pandemic slowed down most of his fundraising efforts, forcing him to push back his grand opening.
But despite not having everything exactly how he wants it, Fraley has decided to open his doors to the teens who need this place now more than ever.
