YMCA of Greater Louisville & Charter Partners Break Ground in West Louisville
The YMCA of Greater Louisville broke ground today on its new west Louisville location, a $28 million investment located at 1700 West Broadway.
The official name of Louisville’s newest Y will be the Republic Bank Foundation YMCA. Collaborating partners and tenants include Norton Healthcare, Republic Bank & Trust, ProRehab Physical Therapy, and Family and Children’s Place. The Y’s focus on strengthening community and improving health will be supported through these partnerships.
In addition, the Y furthers its commitment to education through newly developed partnerships with nearby Roosevelt-Perry and Wheatley Elementary Schools. Details of these partnerships are not yet established, but may include swimming classes, nutritional instruction and more. The partnerships will be modeled after the success of the YMCA of Norton Commons, where students at Norton Commons Elementary School engage in Y programs and both buildings share a common gymnasium. While these elementary schools will not be physically connected to the Y, the proximity will foster partnerships that will benefit the students as well as the entire California, Russell and Parkland neighborhoods and beyond.
