DMACC and YMCA-Ankeny Plan Rec Center

Des Moines Area Community College President Rob Denson says rising enrollment, and more student housing near the Ankeny campus has created a need for more recreational space.

Officials with the current Ankeny YMCA, located at Northview Middle School, say they could use more space too, and a more updated facility.

The two entities are now pooling their resources, and making plans to build a student "rec" center, which would also serve current YMCA members in the community.

Denson says if all goes well, construction will begin a year from now.

The total cost is projected to be 23-(m) million dollars.

It has not been determined if students will pay a monthly fee, or if membership will be included in their student fees.
