FORT WAYNE, Ind., (Indiana's NewsCenter)--- Residents on the northeast side of the city may get a new YMCA in their neighborhood,

The YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne hopes to build its next facility on the south side of St. Joe Center Road between Reed and Maplecrest roads,

The amenities at the proposed facility will depend largely on what the community wants. The YMCA will conduct surveys of the surrounding community and host meetings to decide whether residents want an indoor pool, a place to lift weights and exercise or more.

An exact date to start construction is not known.

The site for the future YMCA is immediately east of current construction being done by St. Joseph United Methodist Church, 6004 Reed Road.
