Groundbreaking ceremonies will be held Tuesday, June 5, at 4:30 p.m. for the new YMCA facility in Indianola.
Construction is scheduled to begin in June on the new Y, which will be located near the corner of Highway 65/69 and Hillcrest.
The groundbreaking is the latest development in an eight-year effort to bring the Y to Indianola. The project is a collaboration among the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, the City of Indianola, Simpson College and Indianola Community Schools. The 62,000-square-foot facility recently received a $481,000 grant from VISION Iowa.
