In its current location since 1892, the Piqua Branch YMCA has been dedicated to giving back, bridging divisional gaps, and providing character building programs for members of our community who need them most.
We see every interaction as an opportunity for learning, growing, and helping individuals and families live their best and most fulfilling lives. Youth benefit from character building-based programs and sports to keep them active, adults benefit from generous access to wellness centers and programs geared toward better health, and seniors benefit from programs designed to keep them active and socially engaged.
While remaining conveniently located in Downtown Piqua, the new facility will allow us to improve and expand current services and offer so much more to the community.
Although the current facility has been well maintained since it was built in 1963, it has reached its limits and is outdated. As a result, the facility struggles to meet the needs of the community, is inefficiently laid out, and expensive to operate and maintain. The community deserves a tailored and dynamic facility with dedicated wellness and program spaces accessible for all abilities and welcoming to ALL.
Renovating the current Piqua Branch YMCA facility will cost $8 million and the deficiencies of tight spacing, ventilation, and accessibility would still not be resolved. Building a new facility will cost approximately $19.5 million and it will solve all the issues related to the current facility and reduce annual operations expenses by as much as 30%. Razing the current facility and replacing it with a much needed new parking lot will cost approximately $1 million.
