The Hastings YMCA currently operates in two buildings (the original 16th St. YMCA and the 18th St. YMCA, formerly “Champions” building). In order to follow ADA compliance, and create operational efficiency the Y has reimagined a space that includes renovating and expanding the 16th St. facility and selling the 18th St. facility. This was decided based on a community survey and strategic planning by key stakeholders and leaders.
