Downtown revitalization again makes the New Albany Tribune front page, as the newspaper’s managing editor steps away form the education beat and chats with Joe LaRocca, executive director of the YMCA of Southern Indiana.
YMCA: 'No doubt' about building in New Albany, by Chris Morris, Tribune Managing Editor.
Chris clearly surveys funding sources for the new YMCA and the Scribner Place project. Here are selected excerpts from the article:
Funding for Scribner Place continues to be debated. The New Albany City Council has the final say on a bond that will help in paying for the project that many say will breathe life back into the city's downtown area.
“We have had great support from the community," LaRocca said. "No matter what happens with Scribner Place funding, the YMCA is coming to Floyd County."
"The only negative thing that we have heard are the concerns people have with the city not following through with their plan. And that is unfortunate," LaRocca said. "But we are moving forward."
