YMCA committee meeting again

GREENVILLE — A committee working on plans for a combined YMCA and event center in Greenville is meeting again this week.

The committee is hoping to nail down some of the details of the proposed $15 million project in time for the Greenville City Council to place the item on the May municipal election ballot.

Organizers believe the combined venue would help both serve the needs of local residents, while also bringing in revenue from hosting conferennces, trade shows and more.

The YMCA Committee meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday at at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, 5501 U.S. Highway 69 in Greenville, and is open to the public.

Thursday’s meeting is to include a presentation on grants, a presentation on the proposed financial plan, a presentation on the business plan and additional committee recommendations.

The Greenville City Council has about a month to determine whether to add a bond election for the project to the May 11 ballot.

The proposal calls for a 70,000 square foot combined facility, with a hotel style lobby, restrooms, porte-cochere, truck service entrance and storage space for tables and chairs. 

When used as an events center the gymnasium would seat 600 people at round tables of 10.

It would include a triple gym with walking track, climbing wall, indoor recreation and lap pool, wellness center, IT center, teen center and service areas designated exclusively for YMCA partnerships.
