MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette City Commission has approved an extension of a lease with the YMCA of Marquette County for their Marquette facility.
The lease extension was a necessary step for the Y to receive a nearly three million dollar U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Loan for a major expansion project at their location adjacent to Lakeview Arena on Fair Avenue.
The YMCA will use the loan to double the size of its wellness center, build a new health innovation suite with a classroom and fitness room, and two new gymnasiums.
The lease extension was unanimously approved by commissioners and the extended lease with the City of Marquette now runs through 2052.
