FORT WORTH - The city council agreed to provide a $2.3 million forgivable loan to the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth to construct a full-service aquatic facility in southeast Fort Worth.
The city will also provide $59,000 annually to help subsidize operation and maintenance costs of the aquatic center, with annual increases of 2 percent.
The new facility will be in the Renaissance Square development, just south of East Berry St. and next to Mitchell Boulevard Elementary School.
Overall cost for the YMCA campus is expected to be $12.1 million.
The YMCA will manage the pool and retain all revenues. Due to the public-private partnership, the public will be able to use the facility without a YMCA membership.
Construction of the aquatics facility could begin as early as July. Swimmers could make their first splash as early as May 2017.
