YMCA plans three new Tristate facilities

        The Greater Cincinnati YMCA plans to expand.

        Three new facilities totaling nearly $17.5 million are planned: the $6 million Carl and Edyth Lindner Family YMCA in the West End; the $5 million Northeast Family Y at Phillips Park near Fallis and Rich roads in Loveland; and a $6.5 million facility at Boone Woods Park near Burlington in Boone County.

        YMCA spokeswoman Jackie Mathews said Tuesday the short list for the Lindner Y is down to three sites she declined to identify.

        The Y has raised about $11 million in its $15 million capital campaign; however, the three projects total $17.5 million as currently proposed.

        Ms. Mathews said no decision on the future of the West End Branch has been made.

        The new Northeast Branch would replace a storefront setup on West Loveland Avenue.

        A public hearing to discuss the facility will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 18 at Loveland City Hall.

        The Boone County facility will cost about $6.5 million and is scheduled to be completed in 2003.
