Construction of New Y Slated For Spring

Construction of a new $22 million Y in the North end will start when the weather warms up. 

That's according to Saint John MP, Rodney Weston, who says the plan is to break ground in late March or early April. Building a new facility was one of the priorities Weston laid out during the last election campaign, and he tells CHSJ News the project is getting to a critical stage with less than six months until they break ground.

The next phase of the project is construction documents.

The layout of the Y in the Crescent Valley neighbourhood was announced last summer, and will include an indoor walking track, three pools and a day care. Weston says he and MP Trevor Holder have been working on getting contributions from the two levels of government to help fund the new 70,000 square foot facility.
