Construction Update – December 29, 2016

Dear West Seattle & Fauntleroy YMCA Members,

Thanks for being patient as we complete the last major phase of remodel and expansion of your West Seattle YMCA facility. Our contractor crews have been working long shifts throughout the recent closure, including holidays and weekends, to move the project forward.

Unfortunately, the West Seattle Y building will be delayed in reopening for a critical install that is taking longer and postponing final inspections. We are now targeting to reopen on Friday, January 6 at 5:30am.

I am very sorry for our inability to meet the original January 2 target. As you may know, construction projects can be difficult to perfectly time.

Our members have been troopers through the dust, noise, winding corridors and construction inconveniences of the past seven months and now we’re excited for you to see the finished results! Beyond all the benefits the facility will provide, we will be introducing some great new programs, classes and equipment.

To thank you for your patience and to help you fully experience your newly-remodeled and expanded Y, we will be providing each current member household with a $75 CONSTRUCTION CREDIT for YMCA programs in 2017. You can use it for a 1:1 personal fitness training or to participate in a small group class, one of our new cooking programs or swim lessons. Or maybe you just want to reduce your child care or summer day camp fees.

Over the next week we will continue to post additional updates here and on our social media accounts.  Group exercise classes will be added to the Fauntleroy schedule and drop-in child care will continue to have extended hours as it has the past two weeks. Full details on redeeming your $75 CONSTRUCTION CREDIT can also be found below this blog post.

Thank you for your membership. We can’t wait to welcome you back to your new Y!
