The new REACH Center on Progress drive in Xenia has gone up quickly. Prefabricated concrete walls, roofing and exterior brick work have been completed and the full shape of the building is now visible.
The 75,200-square-foot facility will serve as the new home for the YMCA in Xenia, featuring regulation-size and warm-water therapy pools, as well as providing expanded social services and activities for senior citizens. The REACH Center is a partnership between Xenia, the Greater Dayton YMCA, Clarke State Community College and Central State University. The REACH Center will replace the senior center and the Xenia YMCA. Kettering Health bought the land for the project and plans to eventually have a facility at the site.
