Mason YMCA to Close

Posted By on Thu, Oct 27, 2011 at 10:56 AM

The Mason YMCA on Walker near the University of Memphis will close at the end of the year, according to an email sent to YMCA members this morning.

The organization's board of directors made the decision to close the facility based on a cost estimate of $2.6 million for needed repairs, plus an additional $2 to $3 million to bring the facility up to current YMCA standards.

"Because the Mason Y has been a Memphis institution for more than five decades, this is a particularly tough decision, yet it is one that is prudent for maintaining the financial health of the overall YMCA of Memphis and Mid-South," said YMCA president Keith Johnson in an email to members this morning.
