A proposed land purchase option between the City of Washington and the YMCA was discussed at last night’s city council meeting. The proposed parcel included in the purchase option is a 5.3 acre piece of land at the corner of 5th Street and F Street in Washington, adjacent to the proposed Wellness Park. YMCA Director Becky Harkema stated that the agreement is desired so that as she moves forward with community forums and fundraising the project has a place. As council further discussed, questions concerning the agreement, specifically the size and cost of the parcel, were raised and the council decided to address the agreement at next week’s work session.
