Paperwork has been filed for a new YMCA in Steele Creek. This location is the perfect place for families in Lake Wylie to hit on their way home from an Uptown commute. It will be easy to get kids there for weekend sports games, or swimming lessons. The YMCA is definitely a place to bring the community together.
The new YMCA proposal would be located on Sledge Road and Steele Creek Road. The current proposal would have up to 15,000 square feet of indoor recreation as well as plenty of space for outdoor recreation as well. This would most likely include many types of sports fields and pools.
Homebuilder Pulte Group filed a petition for rezoning of the land for the intended use in August. The entire parcel has 272 acres and would have up to 697 single family homes with 120 age-restricted units for 55+ residents.
Of course, all of this development depends on the approval from city council, but the area is booming with growth. This would be the first YMCA for the Charlotte area since the construction of Sara’s YMCA three years ago. Steele Creek is great because it is close to the lake as well as close to the city. It is a nice in-between point that is fully coming into its own as a destination.
This YMCA would join the other 25 locations in the Greater Charlotte Area. The new location would have the expected features of other locations including childcare, classes, independent workouts, camps, bootcamps, swimming, education, accessibility, day camps and more.
