Construction For The Renovation Of Le Mars YMCA Nearing Completion


(Le Mars) — Construction is wrapping up on the renovation and expansion of the Le Mars YMCA Community Wellness Center. Todd Lancaster, the executive director of the local Y says from start to finish, the project took about a year to complete.

Although phase one of the construction project is now complete, Lancaster says work is still being performed on what is being referred to as phase 2.

Lancaster says with the new addition, both with the upstairs and the lower level, the YMCA has added approximately 6,000 more square feet of space. He talks about the expansion and changes to the local wellness center.

Lancaster talks about some of the other changes to the building.

The renovation project has been primarily financed through contributions to the Le Mars Area Betterment Foundation.

Lancaster says they hope to someday be able to hold an open house for the YMCA, but in the near term, those plans need to wait due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions.
