20TH AVE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT 2022


PARDON THE NOISE + MESS

We are excited to share that we are making some exciting changes at the 20th Ave YMCA to enhance the member experience. From our youngest members, to our families and all those we serve, there is something for everyone! We are:

  • Expanding 20th Ave Childcare to increase the number of children served to help meet the needs of our community.
  • Relocating Child Watch to the front of the Y. This will be more convenient for families and improves the safety and security of the program.
  • Renovating our Prime Time space for youth to enjoy with a café feel, space to enjoy a snack, charging and homework stations, comfortable seating, and a safe and welcoming environment to be with their peers.
  • Converting the Family Gym (New Name Coming Soon!) to a formal Group Exercise and training space. This transition will be home to numerous Group Exercise classes and an improved space for KinetiX that will impact the health and well-being of all ages.
  • Replacing the Soccer Arena field. With a NEW base, NEW turf, and NEW lights, the Arena will be like new again.
Construction will occur and continue through the summer months. We appreciate your understanding. Please see the front desk with questions.

PROJECT UPDATES:



UPDATE SEPTEMBER 13

Here are a few construction project updates:
 

  • New Child Watch: FINISHED AND NOW OPEN!
  • New Childcare Classroom: Flooring is being finished as well as some finishing touches. OPENING SOON!
  • Soccer Arena: The Soccer Arena will be CLOSED beginning Sunday, September 18 at the end of the day. Renovations will begin including installation of NEW turf and more! The Soccer Arena is estimated to be closed for 4-5 weeks. The fall Wiggles & Giggles Program WILL NOT begin until the Soccer Arena is complete.
  • New Youth Lounge: Flooring is being finished as well as some finishing touches. OPENING SOON!
  • New Training Studio: Flooring is being finished as well as some finishing touches. OPENING SOON!
 

UPDATE JULY 22

Due to supply chain issues the soccer arena project has been pushed back a bit. The soccer arena will most likely remain open all of August. In addition, the flooring needed for our new spaces is also delayed– so we are looking at the first week in September for those as well.

Good News!!!  The new Child Watch room will be ready ON TIME and there will NOT be any interruption in service. The new Training Studio will also be ready ON TIME.
Stay Tuned!!

 

UPDATE JUNE 15

The project has begun!!!  So exciting. Today (June 29th), crews began work creating a door into the new Child Watch room (aka KinetiX room).  We know this has created some dust and much noise when they cut into congrete.  Please call our Downtown Y  (920) 236-3380 if you would need any assistance as this can create an issue for our front desk at 20th to hear you on the telephone.  We appreciate your patience.  We are still able to connect you with our team at 20th. 

Member Entrance:  You will see some changes beginning at the front doors of the Y.  Half of the main entrance/exit will be designated for construction crews ONLY and the other half will be for members to enter and exit.  The west side (right side as you enter) will serve as the entrance and exit for members and guests during construction. There is a barrigade to keep the areas separate from each other.  
  
Soccer Arena to be CLOSED through Friday July 1st for the installation of the new lighting. 

The week of July 5th:  The Primetime hallway will be closed next week Tuesday, Wednesday, and possibly Thursday.  Child Watch families will need to enter at the childcare doors to drop off children in Child Watch and then enter through the main doors. We know it's inconvenient- but it's the safest way to keep Child Watch open.  This is necessary because they are cutting into the floor and concrete wall. This should be the only time we need to completely close that hallway.
