Facility Closing Schedule

Posted by: admin    |    Monday, July 10, 2017

How long will the Y be closed?

Each branch will be closing at different times, allowing you the opportunity to use our other facilities during the scheduled closing.

Downtown will be closed July 24-28 and the pool will be closed July 13-30.

Northwest will be closed August 2-4

Yorktown will be closed August 7-11

Why shutdown?

Regular housekeeping of the facility is done on an everyday basis with supervision. While a shutdown week is standard practice with YMCAs, the YMCA of Muncie has not hosted a shutdown to care for large maintenance projects. This year the scope and volume of projects requires us to do so.  We believe that you will value the changes you will see upon your return.

The Y is closing with the utmost consideration for the members as we are ensuring that our facility and equipment are as clean and safe as possible for all.

What are we working on? (each branch will vary)

  • Deep cleaning
  • Painting
  • Regular maintenance
  • Upgrades & maintenance to the pool Downtown
  • Equipment maintenance and cleaning
  • Replace Gym floor at Northwest
  • Remodel Northwest Kid Zone
  • Replace main floor carpet Downtown
  • Sealing and striping parking lots at Northwest & Apple Tree\

What about the members?

During this time members are welcome to utilize our other YMCA of Muncie branch (Blackford County, Downtown, Northwest, Yorktown) or visit another YMCA in our region such as Henry County, Randolph County, or Indianapolis that honors the reciprocal agreement to any active YMCA member. 

What about the future?

Our goal for shutdown in the future is to reduce downtime to a long weekend at most or to phase projects throughout the week in order to keep some areas or a portion of the building open and accessible to members. Unfortunately, there are too many projects going on concurrently this year.  Thank you in advance for your continued support, patience and understanding.
