The Barrie YMCA is one step closer to realizing their dream of a new location for the aging facility. The YMCA applied for rezoning of their current land yesterday hoping that they can finally get permission to sell the land to a developer. The developer plans to build residential buildings on the site that would address some of Barrie’s affordable housing needs..
The YMCA has been hunting for a Downtown location for their new facility for years now. Selling their land will open up opportunities and make the dream more of a reality. The new Barrie YMCA will actually be smaller than the current one but sources at the YMCA promise a more usable space and a more energy efficient facility.
