Hagar Enterprises will commence paving the Central Lincoln County YMCA’s parking lot beginning Thursday, Aug. 9, previously scheduled for Aug. 2 but delayed due to weather. On this date, Hagar will pave a portion of the lot, and although the Y will remain open, there will be limited parking available. On Friday, Aug. 10, the Y will close early for the day at noon to allow Hagar to pave the remainder of the lot. On these two days, summer camp drop-off and pick up will be at the Great Salt Bay Community School playground.
On Saturday, Aug. 11, the Y will be open as usual, with no paving taking place. On Sunday, Aug. 12, the lot will be striped, and directional painting will occur. This schedule is subject to change again, depending on the weather.
On Monday morning, Aug. 13, plan to follow the new traffic pattern into and leaving the Y. The new lot was designed to make room for more vehicles but also for a safe circular pattern for dropping off and picking up members and program participants.
It is also important to note that the Y has worked with local architect Tor Glendinning, Justin Hagar from Hagar Enterprises, Jan Wiegman from Wright-Pierce, and local officials to rework the lining and directional paths of the parking lot to make an additional 25-30 spaces due to the rapid YMCA membership growth. In September, the islands and peninsulas, as well as the front of the Y, will be landscaped (greenspace) according to the plan that was approved by the town.
The CLC YMCA is a key collaborative leader improving the quality of life for all by being the champion for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
