YMCA Update: Little News On South Shore Y

The YMCA came out with an update on the future of some of its branches Friday, and while sales of several locations appear to be moving ahead, they are still looking for an operator for the South Shore Y in Cudahy.

From the press release

A number of hopeful discussions have been had with potential operators of both the South Shore YMCA and Camp Matawa. While the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee has nothing to disclose at this time, it remains fully committed to working with all parties to find long-term partners best suited to maximize the potential of these facilities.

The update is line with what was shared at a meeting between Y leadership, me, the Cudahy mayor and other local municipal and school officials a couple of weeks ago. I left that meeting hopeful that the Y would find the right partner to keep the facility serving the public as it has for decades (and as it continues to do during the bankruptcy).

I wish Y leaders the best in this process. The Y does so much good for so many people in our community.
