Barrie YMCA confirms site of new centre: corner of Bradford and Dunlop streets

The Barrie YMCA, through correspondence to members from the vice president of YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka, has confirmed the site of its planned new centre in downtown Barrie.
The YMCA has “signed a memo of understanding to purchase land at the corner of Bradford and Dunlop Streets: this will be the home of your new Barrie Y,” writes Karen Pulla.
“In the coming year we will be reaching out to our Barrie Y members for input into design and program functions of this new facility. A capital campaign will also launch in the new year; our fundraising efforts along with the sale of our Grove Street property will fund the construction of the new facility.
“Please note that the agreement with our development partners on the Grove Street site will allow us to continue to operate our current facility up until the time we can move into our new home in 2021.”
