Lower Bucks Family YMCA is looking to rebuild

Written by LBFYMCA on 27 August 2014. Posted in News blog

Lower Bucks Family YMCA Board of Directors unanimously voted Wednesday, August 27 to place its Fairless Hills real estate assets for sale as a first step to developing a new facility. This includes the sale of the main branch, the playground lot and the Wellness Center located at 601 S. Oxford Valley Road and 555 S. Oxford Valley Road.

 

The Board of Directors determined that the sale is necessary because the Fairless Hills facility is dated and requires extensive repairs. A new facility will allow the Lower Bucks Family YMCA to better serve its existing members while attracting local families to the Y.

"Our vision is to serve more families in the community. The Fairless Hills facility of Lower Bucks Family YMCA is not optimal to achieve this vision," said Zane Moore, Acting CEO of Lower Bucks Family YMCA.

The Board plans to create a new vision and transition plan for the Lower Bucks Family YMCA. They fully expect that Fairless Hills programs and other commitments will continue to operate throughout the process.

Lower Bucks Family YMCA will review all options to assure uninterrupted programs and services to its members during this transition. The Tri Hampton and Morrisville branches of Lower Bucks Family YMCA will not be included in the sale and will continue to operate as usual.

Lower Bucks Family YMCA invites the community and donors to a 'Share the Vision' event this fall at which time we will communicate the plan and gain community and financial support for the newly created Lower Bucks Family YMCA vision.

We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus.
