Early investors kicked off the renovation project today as they used a sledge hammer to whack a hole in the wall on the fifth floor at the y.
The renovation project will take place in a more than 53 hundred square foot vacant space.
It will accomodate needs for the teen program that deals with social, behavioral, emotional, educational and recreational needs of erie's youth.
The y has nearly half the total amount of money it needs for the project. But the erie community foundation is urging the community to chip in. .
The renovations are expected to begin within the next month.
