The Montecito Association will host a Community Forum to discuss the YMCA’s Proposed Master Plan on Monday, August 8, 2011 at 7:00 PM at the El Montecito Presbyterian Church Parrish Hall, 1455 East Valley Road. We invite community members to attend and share comments regarding the proposal.
The project is intended to modernize the facility to better accommodate existing users and to provide an enclosed gymnasium space for use in YMCA programs. We are interested in hearing community members’ comments on the proposed project and its compatibility with the scale and character of Montecito and the immediate area.
The Channel Islands YMCA has developed a long range plan to remodel and expand the Montecito YMCA located at 591 Santa Rosa Lane and will submit plans for County review and approval in the near future. The proposed plan includes the expansion and addition of a second story to the main building, construction of a new 5,321 square foot locker room and natatorium building with an indoor swimming pool, a new 2,723 square foot child care building and an 11,020 square foot gymnasium adjacent to San Ysidro Road in the location of the existing outdoor sports court. The total amount of gross building area would increase from 11,220 square feet to 34,800 square feet.
Community members that would like to tour the existing Montecito YMCA facilities are encouraged to contact Mike Yamasaki at 969-3288.
We encourage attendance at the upcoming event. Please contact the Montecito Association office at 969-2026 with any questions or comments.
