In a decision that drew audible derision from much of the gathered crowd, the University Park Planning and Zoning Commission approved plans Tuesday evening for a renovated Park Cities YMCA.
As opponents waved signs reading “Y Too Big,” the commission voted 4-1 in favor of the plan. The up-to 65,000 square foot project now heads to UP City Council, on July 17.
After the meeting, opponents planned their next moves while supporters and YMCA officials were careful not to seem too excited. The City Council has the power to throw out the commission’s decision entirely, after all, and force the YMCA to start from scratch.
See you in July?
