This week, Muskegon Community College (MCC) agreed to purchase the Muskegon Family YMCA property at 900 W. Western Avenue.
The governing boards of the Muskegon Family YMCA and Muskegon Community College approved agreements that will improve the YMCA’s financial position allowing it to continue its transformation beyond the walls of the Y facility. MCC will contract with Power Wellness to operate the W. Western Avenue site.
There are no planned changes to membership or programs offered at the W. Western facility through the end of 2015.
YMCA Board CVO Rod Hayhurst stated, “Over the past 14 months, YMCA CEO Bruce Spoelman has led an operational and financial transformation that provided organizational stability. This transformation, however, was not enough to overcome the long-term debt accumulated from past operations. The YMCA board recognized the opportunity the MCC purchase option provided. Without it, the YMCA faced jeopardizing the ongoing operations of the YMCA at both the W. Western facility and Camp Pendalouan.”
This week’s vote marks an important milestone in the Muskegon YMCA’s history. The Y is more than a building. It’s an association of people. Our members, volunteers and staff have always been the heart of our YMCA. We are people from all walks of life who share a passion for strengthening the foundations of our community and achieving health in spirit, mind and body.
“We will continue our transformation by focusing on signature YMCA programs such as Safety Around Water, Chronic Disease Prevention and youth development outreach” said Spoelman. “Through collaboration with MCC and other community partners we remain committed to building a healthy future for Muskegon.”
