The landscape at Monett's South Park has permanently changed with the beginning of dirtwork for construction of the new Monett Area YMCA. Trees around the former Jones/Kleiboeker property have been removed and leveling work started on the ground. Heavy equipment has steadily kicked up clouds of dust.
Construction on the $11 million facility is expected to take 14 months.
