For the third time in recent years, a regional community has decided to replace an aging YMCA.
The City of Jamestown is prepping to replace the YMCA on Fourth Street with a new one on Harrison Street. The project is expected to cost $26 million.
The Lockport YMCA opened in 2018 and plans are underway for a new YMCA in Batavia.
“If there was one thing we learned – and we learned a lot – during the pandemic is that our Y needs to be replaced,” said Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist.
