“The good citizens of Johnstown have waited a long time for a facility like this, and they deserve to be a part of its memorable celebration,” said Johnstown Mayor Scott James. “The Johnstown Community YMCA is all about kids and families, so we invite them ALL to bring their own shovel on Saturday and help us get started!”
“Town Council and staff have been diligent in saving and planning for this facility, and I am thrilled we are able to build it without increasing debt or taxes,” James continued. “I could not be prouder of the design, construction and operational partners we have chosen, and I know we will build a world-class rec-center our citizens can be proud of and enjoy for generations to come.”
This state-of-the-art facility will include a fitness center, a preschool, an aquatics center, community event spaces, sports fields, multipurpose rooms, and much more.
