Carlisle Family YMCA Construction UpdatesWEEKLY CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Construction is under way!
During the first several months of construction the impacts to Y members will be:
- West Street entrance closed. Use the Arch Street entrance.
- Less on-site parking available.
- Courts will be temporarily out of service for renovations. Court #1 will return as soon as possible.
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
- Summer 2020 – Relocate services within the building
- Late Summer 2020 – Demo former school building, start Phase 2
- Late 2021 – Complete Phase 2 and other interior renovations
