The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati has announced plans to realign services and programs offered by its city core branches, which will result in the closure of the Williams Y in East Walnut Hills.
The closure will go in effect on August 22, 2011, with programs and membership services shifting to other branches.
The Melrose Y in Walnut Hills will continue to host and direct Y Community Services, Y Black and Latino Achievers, the Y Mentoring Center and Y Child Development Services while membership services will be shifted to other branches effective August 22, 2011.
"The Y is about people, not facilities. Closing any branch is a difficult decision and we have wrestled with the future of Williams Y and Melrose Y for years. In the context of how we deliver services today, these two buildings no longer create the vibrant experiences that all Y members deserve," said Sandy Berlin Walker, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati. "With the Y's vision and focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility, this realignment will strengthen services to children, youth and adults throughout the region."
"The Metro Board has unanimously endorsed the vision for improved service delivery in the city core," said Mike Zorn, YMCA of Greater Cincinnati Board Chair. "In fact, we've been discussing this topic for many years. We know this decision will enable us to maintain our commitment to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility."
The city core realignment decision making process included a review of factors such as declining levels of membership and program participants, overlapping membership bases, the age and design of the buildings and more. Participation in programs at Melrose Y has declined 50% in the past four years and Williams Y has seen a 29% decline in membership over the past three years.
