Stay connected and informed on the project and the program areas that are impacted.
We will be updating our members and the community regularly on progress, class and program updates and what you might expect when visiting the Y during the renovation and expansion project through-out the construction. It will certainly be challenging at times but it will be well worth the short term inconveniences we will go all be going through together.
Update: October 31, 2019
NEWLY OPENED AREAS:
Our NEW Early Learning Center, new Youth Development Zone, Community Meeting Room, and additional Bathrooms are now open!
Our brand new Framingham Branch School’s Out program serving McCarthy Elementary families is open and ready for afterschool programs!
The Swimming Pool is OPEN!
Our new Group Exercise (Studio A) is now open. There will still be some disruption, as the construction crew still needs to install an emergency exit and finish the hallway. Please follow the signs to access the new Group Exercise Room.
The new Pool Viewing area is being built and the construction crew has been busy working on the pool deck, building out certain parts of it and installing new tiles throughout.
The opening of the new Gymnasium (basketball court) has been delayed. Sports instructional classes will be held in the existing ½ gym and 1/2 of the new gymnasium. Gymnastics, volleyball, catchball and pickleball are delayed and we will contact you with updates as they become available.
The Café is scheduled to open on November 5.
Beginning on Friday November 1, at 6am, the Front door to the MetroWest YMCA will not be accessible while we reconfigure our front sidewalk and stairs for safer drop-off and pick-up. This phase of our project will continue through the end of this year. To enter the building please use the door on the left side when you are facing the building, next to the Dance Studio (Concord Street side). If you are unable to use stairs, please use the lower level access door, on the pool-side parking lot side of the building. If a Member Service staff is not present at this door, please ring the doorbell for assistance. Please view video below for clarification.
Temporary fencing has been installed in the first row of parking spaces. This will change the traffic pattern in the front parking lot. Thank you in advance for driving slowly and cautiously through the parking lot.
Construction on the Member Services Desk and Office will begin in November.
Flooring in all of our hallways is being replaced at various times over the course of our construction project.
The NEW Functional Training and turf space will be ready for occupancy January 2, 2020.
We are committed to communicating timelines as quickly as we can, understanding the challenges we will face as we try to remain occupied and in operation, during the project.
