The University Park City Council took an unusual step Tuesday night, altering the submitted plans for the renovated Park Cities YMCA instead of approving or denying the proposed 65,000 square foot project.
Prior to the meeting, Mayor Dick Davis indicated that the Council would — most likely — not approve the plans as submitted. He then added that he didn’t want the project to start from fresh, a move that would require the Y to return to the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission as well.
So the Council altered the submittal, approving a 52,000 square-foot building, roughly 20 percent lower than the Y requested. Y officials and neighbors both seemed somewhat confused by the decision.
