Trim Gym looks to expand, requests rezoning

The Trim Gym in Jonesboro could soon be expanding.

Since early 2014, the lot next to the gym has been empty. A fire destroyed Forest Home Church of the Nazarene in mid-February.

After the fire, the Race Street Athletic Club, also known as the Trim Gym, purchased the lot.

Now they're looking to rezone the land for commercial use.

Though the Trim Gym couldn't give specific details just yet, they told Region 8 News that they plan to expand and enhance their facilities into that lot to better serve their customer base.

The rezoning was approved through the Jonesboro Metropolitan Area Planning Commission and was held to a second reading at the Jonesboro City Council Tuesday night.

The next Jonesboro council meeting will be held on October 5.
