LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Plans to expand La Crosses' YMCA are moving forward with a little help from the city.

Tonight the city's Common Council approved rezoning parts of La Crosse's Washburn residential neighborhood for use. This allows the Y to build a new teen center and expand its parking lot. It's just a small part of a bigger plan to renovate the entire Y building.

“They're going to be developing a new teen center which is going to be a great service you know for our youth here in La Crosse as well as a future expansion of the y itself. It's a really great project and a lot of people are excited about that,” said La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat.

The Y hopes to break ground on the project in April of 2015.
