      Renovations coming to Marquette YMCA

      The Marquette County YMCA is making some adjustments to give its members more of what they want.

      The renovations will include an expanded fitness area, additional locker room space, and an extra gym with an indoor track and concession area.

      The facility's CEO said the changes became necessary after the Y started losing membership due to a lack of space.

      "We went back and looked at it a year and a half ago. The number one reason people were leaving is that we're too crowded and there just wasn't space," said CEO Lisa Coombs Gerou. "And with the combining of the girls and the boys sports seasons, gym space is really difficult to find in the community."

      The renovation is expected to cost $3 million total. The Y has already started taking contractor bids.
