One of the 'nicest YMCAs' anywhere will open soon in west Louisville. Why it's so vital
Historic photos of west Louisville line the entrance to the community's new YMCA — a state-of-the-art complex more than 10 years in the making.
The Grand Theater on Walnut, the Parkland Colored Library senior mobile homes for sale near me Shawnee Park all appear in dozens of black-and-white images that are expected to greet hundreds of members upon the facility's opening later this month.
The display is the clearest example of the YMCA's efforts to incorporate input from its neighbors, portraying the rich heritage and culture of the area's nine predominantly African American neighborhoods.
But it's just one piece of the $33 million center that's tailored for them.
The Republic Bank Foundation YMCA at 1720 W. Broadway will offer a range of new services and programming that aims to improve the overall health of the surrounding community — an area that's long suffered from disinvestment and a lack of resources.

It's the YMCA of Greater Louisville's biggest and most high-profile attempt at addressing health disparities that experts say cause people in west Louisville to live, on average, 12 years less than people in other parts of the city.
"We recognize that the choices people make are the choices people have," CEO Steve Tarver said during a tour of the facility Monday. "Everybody does not enjoy the same opportunities for good health. I'm not just talking about treadmills and fitness classes. I'm talking about healthy relationships, safety, financial stability, education is critical.
"This collaboration is intended to be an expansion of people's choices and their options. Bring those options closer to them regardless of their ZIP code."
Partners in the complex include Republic Bank, Norton Healthcare, ProRehab, Family & Children's Place and Gilda's Club.
Each will operate out of its own space at the Y in a section that's open to all visitors, not just members.
Expected services include financial literacy classes, behavioral counseling, a family medicine clinic and even technology courses for teens led by sponsor Best Buy.
"This will be one of the nicest YMCAs frankly anywhere in the country," Tarver said. "But it’s the scope of our partners that make it unique."

Anyone can tour the Y before it opens. See below for a tour schedule through Dec. 13.
The YMCA will open to members Dec. 14 and will have a grand opening Dec. 18.
State Rep. Attica Scott, who represents a portion of Jefferson County that includes west Louisville, said she's glad to see the Y opening, especially at the head of the 18th Street corridor.
The intersection of 18th and Broadway has always been a focal point of west Louisville, Scott said. And the Y's presence there will bring renewed attention to the historically prominent area.
"For far too long, west Louisville has been treated as this other part of Louisville," Scott said. "The Y being such an anchor there at 18th and Broadway really opens up west Louisville to be fully included as part of Louisville."
Tarver said the nonprofit expects not only nearby residents but also people who work downtown to become members of the facility.
Membership rates reflect incomes in the surrounding neighborhoods, Tarver said, and will be offered on a sliding scale.
Within the first year, the Y anticipates registering 1,700 families as members at the new location.
The nonprofit has faced criticism by some in the community for duplicating services that are already available in republic bank near me now Louisville at facilities such as the Chestnut Street YMCA and the St. Stephen Family Life Center.

Tarver said the Chestnut Street location will remain open as a "program center" that compliments the new Y. And he hopes to work with other groups in the area instead of competing with them.
"If west Louisville were a city in itself, it would be the fourth or fifth largest city in the state," he said. "Until everybody is healthy and thriving, there's room for everybody. No one agency, including the YMCA, is going to meet the challenges of this neighborhood alone."
The challenges of the neighborhoods include higher rates of infant mortality, homicide, drug and alcohol use, and chronic disorders, such as heart disease and arthritis, according to the 2017 Health Equity Report from the city's Center for Health Equity.
Bill Bossier, owner of Renaissance Creative, an advertising agency that created the entrance's photo display, said the facility will be more than a place for people to exercise.
It will allow people to come together and work toward community health.
"It's just important to our future," Bossier said.

BURLINGTON TWP. - An imposing entrance that once welcomed shoppers to a mall here now looms over a field of rubble.
Demolition is well underway at the former Burlington Center, and the planning board this week is to consider plans for extensive new construction there.
A Maryland firm wants to build three warehouses with a combined 1.9 million square feet at the sprawling property off Burlington-Mount Holly Road near Interstate 295.
Its proposal also calls for more than 100,000 square feet of retail development, including shops, restaurants and medical offices in seven buildings. That compares service credit union branches near me more than 850,000 square feet of space at the long-vacant mall.
The project, known as The Crossings, won preliminary approval Thursday from Burlington Township’s planning board.

The board also considered a preliminary proposal for an unrelated shopping cincinnati homes for sale mls with a Chipotle restaurant and up to four other tenants. The 12,000-square-foot project would rise next to a Lidl supermarket that opened last summer on the same highway, also known as Route 541.
Board members approved consolidation of a three-acre lot as an early step toward potential development.
Township officials pursued redevelopment of Burlington Center for almost 15 years, eventually reaching agreement on the current proposal.
"The location is tremendous," said developer Dan Hudson of MRP Industrial, a Baltimore-based firm that has built multiple warehouses in Burlington County.
He noted the site's location next to Interstate 295 and a short distance from the New Jersey Turnpike.
The two-level mall was built in 1982 by the Maryland-based Rouse Co., which developed Cherry Hill Mall in 1961 and Echelon Mall in 1969. The shopping center struggled with rising vacancy rates before closing when burst pipes flooded its interior in January 2018.
Demolition began at the 230-acre site in March and is expected to continue into September.
The warehouses could employ more than 1,000 workers in buildings ranging from 210,800 to 939,300 square feet, according to an environmental impact statement for the project.
The distribution centers would offer “loading stalls” for 336 trucks and parking stalls for more than 1,000 cars, according to the developer’s application.
Tractor-trailer access for the warehouse would be restricted to Burlington-Mount Holly Road, it says.
Retail uses, which could include restaurants with liquor licenses, would occupy about 43 acres of the property. Those buildings, expected to rise near the Bromley Boulevard intersection, would range in size from 2,850 to 55,655 square feet, the application says.
The property will include open space that could be used for additional retail development, noted Chris Roche, a consultant for the developer.
"Hopefully, it will work to our advantage to get some good restaurants and retail into that site," Mayor Brian Carlin said at Thursday's meeting.
The plan also calls for extensive landscaping to screen the project from a nearby residential neighborhood.
According to the environmental impact statement, the plantings would include more than 160 trees and almost 1,300 shrubs.
An application before the planning board says the former mall is being revived by an affiliate of a Maryland real estate investment trust, Lion Industrial Trust.
The smaller retail center is proposed by a group that includes Vernon Hill II of Moorestown, the chairman and CEO of Philadelphia-based Republic Bank.
