The City of Muncie and the YMCA broke ground on a new facility on July 18. The project will be an addition to the McKinley-Whitely Live Learn Neighborhood project, according to the report.

The project is getting completed with the support of multiple donors including $1 million in Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative Funding (READI). 

The YMCA will be located adjacent to Muncie Central High School, and the 73,000-square-foot facility will offer a number of recreational opportunities.
