Elkins YMCA Pool Renovations Still on Schedule

Posted: Updated:
ELKINS -

 Renovations to the Elkins YMCA's pool are on schedule.

The pool has been closed due to roof damage caused by humidity and age.

Officials said a new roof with eight skylights should be finished next month.

Revamped locker rooms and a green space adjoining the pool are also planned.

Repairs should cost about $500,000. The YMCA has received just over $450,000 in pledges.

"And when it's all done. I think it's going to be fantastic and what's also neat, there's going to be hours of the pool where we're going to have 12 and under where kids can swim for free. So it's a fantastic thing and we're super excited," said Sid Gillispie, executive director.

The work should be finished next spring.
