Over 100 people attended the ribbon cutting celebration for Get Air Trampoline Park in Middleburg Heights on Saturday, February 18, 2017. Mayor Gary W. Starr cut the ribbon with Get Air owner Roman Skalsky and general manager Erik Andryszak.
Mayor Starr personally recognized City Council members John Grech, Matthew McGregor and Bill Meany who were present at the event, and also personally recognized Council President Matthew Castelli, and City Council members Raymond G. Guttmann, David Bortolotto and Michael Ference. Mayor Starr thanked all members of Middleburg Heights City Council for their efforts and support in bringing this new business to Middleburg Heights.
Mayor Starr and City Council began working with the owners of Get Air Trampoline Park in June 2016 to facilitate the opening of the new business in November 2016. This new business project reflects an investment of over $400,000 in improvements to the existing building, and over $700,000 in new equipment.
Get Air Trampoline Park has created over 30 new jobs for local residents, including students, plus 10 new additional seasonal jobs during the peak season from December to March. This new business is a destination, attracting patrons from throughout Northeast Ohio.
Get Air Trampoline Park has brought new energy and excitement into Middleburg Heights by providing a unique, fun place to exercise in a safe environment. Get Air also offers birthday parties, teen nights, family nights, dedicated time for special needs children, company teambuilding events, fitness classes, and fundraising opportunities.
In addition, the new business has already begun collaborating with local institutions such as the Middleburg Heights Recreation Center, Berea City Schools, Baldwin Wallace University, and Polaris Career Center to coordinate the use of the new facility with existing programs in the community.
