The City of Sheridan recently made their first payment to the Sheridan County YMCA to build a modern community aquatic center.

The $500,000 payment is part of a $4 million partnership between the Y and the City for the aquatic center. Co-Chair of the Living our Cause, Growing our Cause capital campaign and current Board President Ellen Treide said the City’s gift was the lead gift toward the project, and that the public-private partnership that’s been created has been the driver for accomplishing a common mission of strengthening the community and making Sheridan a great place to live.

According to a news release from the YMCA, the initial schematics for the aquatic center are complete and construction documents are currently being generated for an anticipated groundbreaking this summer. The center will have modern handicap accessible and expanded family locker rooms as well as a leisure pool and six lane lap pool with two slides, diving board, water walk, vortex, zero entry, plus a hot tub on the deck. The project is expected to be complete in fall of 2019.
