The Sumner Design Commission reviewed the first set of renderings for the Sumner YMCA at Sumner City Hall last Wednesday night. This is the next phase towards breaking ground spring of 2014 and opening spring of 2015.
The community has donated $7.75 million toward the YMCA in Sumner, with a total project need of more than $30 million. The community center style facility is expected to be more than 100,000 square feet and serve at least 22,000 East Pierce County residents.
The Y is expected to include: recreational and warm water therapy pools, a teen center, an arts center, a community room, an internet café, member lounges, and more.
“Seeing the renderings of what is to come makes the project even more exciting than before. The Y is proud that Sumner and its surrounding communities will have a state-of-the art facility to call their own,” says YMCA President and CEO Bob Ecklund. With the continued support of donors, the recent renderings will be a reality.See also: Video: YMCA Sign Raised at Future Site in Sumner
