BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The Vestavia Hills YMCA is closing its doors effective August 30th.
The CEO says the move in part because of low attendance at this particular branch.
“Over the past few years we have seen a decline in the use of the Vestavia facility and the demand for programs there,” said Dan Pile, president and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Birmingham. “Our aim is to provide exceptional programs and facilities to our members. We have a 5-year plan to invest more than $20 million in our facilities to keep them modern, relevant places for our members to meet their fitness and wellness goals. We invest where we see the greatest use, and we look forward to welcoming those currently accessing our Vestavia location to our other eight branches."
