The Sandusky Area YMCA is hoping to build a new facility, but needs some help to do it.
The YMCA is requesting $500,000 from the city spread out over a period of time to continue expanding its youth programs at a new, state-of-the-art facility the organization hopes to construct at the former Memorial Hospital site next to Sandusky High School on Hayes Avenue.
Though no timetable has been set for construction to begin, when all of the funding is secured, the existing building would be demolished to make room for the new facility.
"It's an important part of the development of the area," city commissioner Craig Stahl said. "I think the YMCA is definitely worth a commitment from the city. It's a win-win."
