About 75 Holts Summit residents gathered Monday night at the Civic Center to hear plans for a new $475,000 YMCA facility in Holts Summit.
The public forum was conducted by the Holts Summit Board of Aldermen with Patty Miller, executive director of the YMCA of Callaway County, answering questions from those attending.
Most citizen comments on the plan were positive. Many also sought clarification on how the plan for the city to lease recreation programs to the YMCA would operate.
Miller described the proposed arrangement between the city and the YMCA.
Miller said the new 6,000-square-foot exercise and sports services center building would be constructed in Greenway Park next to the Holts Summit Civic Center. The YMCA also would pay to renovate the current Civic Center building.
The YMCA also will install new restrooms in the existing Civic Center, add new flooring and replace all windows.
The total cost the YMCA intends to spend for the new Greenway Park building complex is estimated at $475,000.
