The first community forum was held in mid-January.

To remodel and add on or to build a new facility is the question that the Washington YMCA board will have to decide this month. Tonight the YMCA is hosting the second community forum regarding the project. Director of the YMCA Becky Harkema explains the architects and designers will present renderings, photos and a fly-thru video of both options. Harkema expressed that community ideas voiced at the first forum are included in the new designs.

She adds that it will be about $2.5 million more to remodel than to build new and a new facility is estimated to cost $9.6 million.

The public forum will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at the YMCA.
