Today the WDT reports the local YMCA is so successful they don't have the space for all their athletic programs between their locations downtown and at the Fairgrounds complex once owned by The Ultimate Goal.
Under the soon to retire director Peter Schmitt, the Y has grown and provides a range of services. At one time there were overtures to take over city recreation programs, but it went nowhere.
There are also private gyms and a new childrens play center downtown opening soon. As options increase. it is likely the issue will be revisited.
