New "Y" Facilty Will Be A Catalyst For The Crescent Valley

Saint John Portland MLA Trevor Holder says the new YM-YWCA facility to be built on Churchill Boulevard will be a game-changer for the neighbourhood.

He tells CHSJ News for many years the north end did not have an anchor tenant and it was something residents really wanted.

He says they have been telling him for years that they wanted recreational facilities nearby so they would not have to leave the neighbourhood.

He adds the new Y building will attract new businesses and help transform the Crescent Valley into a mixed-income area.
