Officials in Yates County say fieldhouse construction at the Yates Community Center could happen in 2025.
Last year, the Legislature committed $2 million to the proposed $5 million fieldhouse.
However, efforts to secure an additional $2 million in federal funding fell short.
Participation in the community center has surged, with a reported 65% membership increase and more than 150 active fitness center users.
Officials noted the rising interest in their programs, even as some classes are held in unconventional venues like local churches.
