After years of effort, the dreams and plans took shape, and the Four Seasons YMCA facility was completed. We opened our doors and began serving our community in June of 2009. Even though the building is now complete, Capital Development is an on-going process for our Y. This area of our budget includes debt reduction for the original project, continued payments on our leased equipment, and new equipment purchases.
An amazing amount of volunteer hours, in-kind donations (including our land) and funds were given by our community for the original capital project. This encompassed not only the tangible “brick and mortar” expenditures and exercise equipment, but also other project costs such as consulting expenses, auditing fees, fundraising costs, interest expenses, etc. The undertaking was truly enormous, with the cost of the land, building and original equipment alone totaling over 8.3 million dollars.
