Carlisle Family YMCA Construction UpdatesCONSTRUCTION UPDATE
The new Women’s Locker Room and one of the Private/Family Changing Areas with a shower will be closed the week of May 24 to address drainage issues.
During the closure, all males will use the Men’s Locker Room and all females will use the new Boys’ Locker Room. Some of the Private/Family Changing Areas also will be available for use.
In addition all Water Exercise Classes are cancelled the week of May 24. Lap and Rec Swimming still will be available, but we suggest that members arrive and leave in their suits when possible to alleviate crowding in the locker rooms.
Thank you to everyone who has shared positive comments about our new Y facilities. We are still a work in progress. We recognize that members will be temporarily inconvenienced during the locker room renovation period. We appreciate your patience as we continue to balance serving members with construction challenges.
CONSTRUCTION IS UNDER WAY AND WE ARE EXCITED THAT PHASE 1 IS COMPLETE!
Construction will take approximately 22 months. Work will be completed in phases so the Y can continue to serve you.
Some changes to schedules and services will occur. This is unavoidable due to the length and scope of this project. The Y will make every effort to provide advance notice to members when facility use, or program delivery may be disrupted.
On-site parking will be limited until the new parking area is built during Phase 2. Please utilize on-street parking in the area.
- November 2019 – Break ground on Phase 1
- Fall 2020 – Relocate services within the building
- Late 2020 – Demo former school building, start Phase 2
- Late 2021 – Complete Phase 2 and other interior renovations
Phase 1 – 10 months of construction to create a two-story addition on the west side of the building.
Preparation: Limited on-site parking. Courts close for a limited period.
Demolition: The West Street entrance will be closed. Building access will be through Arch Street entrance. Court #1 will remain. Courts #2, #3 and Squash court will be removed. A new court will replace the squash court for a total of 2 racquetball/handball courts.

Phase 2 – 10-12 months of construction starting late 2020 will create a two-story addition on the north side of the building, a new parking lot and significant renovations to remaining Y facilities.

- Wellness Center will move into second floor space
- Child Care will move temporarily into first floor spaces
- Administration will move temporarily into first floor space
- Fitness Classes will be relocated to current fitness center space to become an auxiliary gym in Phase 2. Note: class schedules may be modified during this period.
