With Congress on recess, 4th District Representative Jim Himes is spending the day travelling around southwestern Connecticut. He made a stop in Wilton at the YMCA to see the progress of their $8-million renovation project.
When the Building New Stories Project is completed this coming, the state-of-the-art facility will feature a wellness center, double it's current size. It will have new strength and cardio training equipment as well. The locker rooms are being modernized, close to the new Fitness Center and the 25-yard pool with large family changing areas and accessible space for seniors and people with special needs. The YMCA is also constructing four dedicated group exercise studios, a Kids Club room for babysitting and an expanded lobby.
There will be a new drop off zone in the parking lot with a walking path from the bridge to the main entrance.
