Park Cities YMCA Asks to Cancel Meetings
Just as our story on the unraveling Park Cities YMCA PD ordinance hits doorsteps, new information shows the Y is asking to cancel upcoming City Council meetings.
John Bunten, project spearhead for the Y, said they requested that Mayor Davis cancel the special meeting and remove the Y from the Dec. 18 regular City Council meeting.
He said via email that “each continued additional requirement by the City Council and City Staff to our proposed building square footage, operational hours and having to ask for permission to use our own playing field on Sundays for any type of family event incluing birthday parties is just too much.”
He said they’re stepping back from negotiations for the rest of the Holiday season.
UP spokesman Steve Mace said they are aware of the Y’s message and will notify me once something materializes on the situation.
Update: Mace said the council has cancelled the meetings and will wait for word from the Park Cities YMCA before placing the item on a Council agenda.
