YMCA Community Center Progressing in Bozeman

With initial plans being submitted to the City Planning office for a new YMCA community center, it appears the project only needs to secure funding in order to move forward with plans.

The building, designed to be 20,000 square feet, will be approximately a 6 million dollar project, slightly up from March projections of 5.5 Million dollars. In March, the Gallatin Valley YMCA had raised 2.5 million for the project. Now, they have secured $300,000 in additional donations and are 1.2 million short of the 4 million needed to move forward on the project. The 4 million dollars would be used to secure construction financing while also being used to seek grant support from other foundations.

Initially, the YMCA had plans to team up with the City of Bozeman to also include a new aquatics center for West Bozeman residents. However, that plan has been put on hold as city officials have now started work on passing a bond for a new, shared Law and Justice Center for the city and Gallatin County. The community center will be built in a way that will allow an aquatic center to connect at some point in the future.

Bozeman continues to put in the necessary infrastructure as it expands to the west. West end Bozeman residents will be happy to hear that these sort of projects are in the pipeline and will help them keep their travel distances to a minimum in Bozeman.
